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, The Camden Grocer for an indulgent brekkie of gourmet eggs and Camden Coffee for the best and strongest coffee in Camden.
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, in front of the Shaka Zulu statues for that banging shot of the bridge in the background.
Shopping & Lunch
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
1:30pm-2:15pm — A Visit to CyberDog or Vagina Museum
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.
Or if take a peek into the Vagina Museum and behold their Muff Busters exhibition. Learn about the female production system, anatomy and not-so-fun stuff too.
2:15pm-4:15pm — A Trip on the Waterbus
Part of 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.
4:15pm-5:30pm — Pick Up a Record or Two
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 Gin. Spend an hour at their Gin School 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 Mexican cantina, Cafe Chula (where you can also grab a mojito). If you prefer to have something cheesy going on, The Cheese Bar are serving up oozy cheeseboards and grilled cheese sandwiches.
7:30pm onwards — Catch Some Comedy or a Gig
