Visiting The Market
The Ultimate Camden Market Itinerary
First time Camden Market visitor? We’ve done the legwork for you, with this day-to-night to-do list…
9am-10am — Breakfast
Whilst you are waiting for the stalls to open, head to Cereal Killers Cafe for sugary cereals with a side of nostalgia, Flour Station for fancy pastries or Cafe Loren for an indulgent brekkie of eggs and strong coffee.
10am-10:30am — The Perfect Selfie Op
Before things get too busy, you’ll want to get those perfect Insta-snaps out of the way. We recommend down by the Camden Lock, by our pink and yellow OI! sign or next to CHEBA’s space inspired wall in the North Yard.
10:30am-12:30pm — Vintage Shopping
A rummage through the Market’s best vintage stores including What Goes Around, and St Cyr Vintage are the perfect place to pick up a proper Camden Market souvenir, from distressed denim to 1950s prom dresses.
12:30pm-1:30pm — Lunch
How do we spell lunch at Camden Market? K-E-R-B. For some of London’s best street food traders and dishes from every cuisine, head to the West Yard for the likes of The Cheese Wheel, Oli Baba’s, Burger and Beyond and Luardos.
1:30pm-2:15pm — A Visit to CyberDog
No trip to Camden Market would be complete without a stop at the rave punk paradise that is CyberDog. Pick up some outrageous outfits, pick up some glow in the dark body paint, pick up a sex toy or two… It’s a truly a sight to behold. Did we mention the podium dancers?
2:15pm-4:15pm — A Trip on the Waterbus
Part of the the Market’s charm is its canal-side location, so a voyage down Regent’s Canal — which can take you as far as Little Venice and back — is a chilled out way to take in the sights, including ZSL London Zoo and the Snowdon Aviary.
4:15pm-5:30pm — Learn To DJ and Pick Up a Record or Two
Think you’re a world-class DJ in the making? Book an hour or two of lessons under the guidance of critically acclaimed, experienced DJs at the London Sound Academy. Plus, if you want to pick up something to take home and practice with, Camden Market’s record stalls have stock everything from punk to reggae, jazz and funk.
5:30-6:30pm — Distill Your Own Gin
Put some gin in your grin with Camden Market’s resident micro-distillery HALF HITCH. Spend an hour learning about the process and bring in flavourings to create your very own unique gin to take home.
6:30pm-7:30pm — Dinner
Grab a slice of the action with Voodoo Ray’s (where you can also grab a beer). If you prefer to have something fishy going on, Seawise are serving up tasty seafood and fish ‘n chips.
7:30pm onwards — Catch Some Comedy or a Gig
On various nights, check out some comedy at The Comedy Loft, whilst no trip to Camden would be complete without some live music, so head to Dingwalls or the Roundhouse for a gig. Don’t wanna stop there? Finish the night off in either Lockside Camden or Proud.
