Camden town area is a district located to the North of London and is recently one of the favourite places for artists and many youth subcultures.

The most characteristic lanmarks of the town are two lovely main streets, Camden High Street and Kentish Town Rd that run through the town and are surrouded by most vibrant, and hideous commercial buildings I have ever seen, a water chanel with lots of little bridges , pedestrian passages, and many open air market places, and art galleries.

The architecture of the town draws everyones attention with its odd shapes, flashy colors of the facades, vibrant signages to shops, appealing look of the bars, restaurants and pubs.

To me, the most interesting of the market places were Camden Lock created within the courtyard of the adapted existing building and Stables Market - located in the former horse hospital place. Stables Market was refurbished and provided with contemoporary features like canopies to newly created restaurants(made of steel and fabric), market stalls, interesting landscape architecture like seats, sculptures, accesible steps etc.

Amy Winehouse lived there and the world's famous graffiti artist Banksy did few of his masterpieces in the area.

The banks of the water channel are the perfect place to have a rest after rummaging through exciting stalls with fake jewellery, souvenirs and panky rebel or vintage clothes and second hand shops.
