Camden Town Revisited

I have a special place in my heart for Camden Town. My brother once lived here and I find it to be a place where you can find the 'real' people of London. Even though it is very ethnic now, you can still hear the occassional cockney accent spruiking their wares at the markets, an aging punk or two that bring back memories from trips to London in my youth, and so many other interesting sights to goggle at. Even in winter, this is a bustling hub of activity wiith so much to see, and experience. 

 We got here quite early and were really cold so went to find somewhere to sit inside and enjoyed a cup of hot chocolate and a slice of banana loaf

 When I was last here I told you about the markets that are held in the old stables. The markets are full of bronze statues and plaques that celebrate these horses and I thought I would take a few photos for you to see

 I think alot of people just come to see these horses as it is very difficult to get a photo due to everyone wanting to pose with them but who can blame them, they are beautiful.

After spending a few hours scouring the markets for trinkets and keepsakes, we had intentions of travelling on the canal to somewhere near Primrose Hill as there are rumoured to be fabulous views of the city from here, but on investigating the barge bus times, we found we had just missed one and the next one wouldn't be for a couple of hours (unless we wanted to pay for the expensive one that stopped at the zoo) and which would make it too late to be trudging up Primrose Hill......maybe on our return to London in a few weeks

(ps.....we never did make it to Primrose Hill this trip)


  1. Wonderful post Cath. Enjoy your trip. Hugs.....

  2. Wow - those bronze statues are fantastic! Maybe someday I will get to visit London.
