Camden Lock Market-London
I am on my second year here in the UK but haven’t been doing some tourist(y) stuff in London. So, new year’s eve, we decided to have mad dash to London. As usual, nothing really planned on where to go and what to do. Don’t get me wrong, we have some in mind and main point of interests but it’s all subject for a change. We allow a crazy travel now and again as we love the fluky adventure.
We drove to London but not really want to drive around the city as parking will be a pain so, we parked somewhere and got ourselves a day tube tickets and hit the ground. As we were closer to Camden Locks Market, husband took the lead and decided to go there. Wowzers! I love the place already. It is said to be the fourth- most popular tourists destination in London hence why as must visit place.
Loads of shops and lots of unusual and quirky stuffs to buy, definitely have something for everyone (oh no…no temptations, please). I was eyeing on some handcrafted jewellery and arts…and erm, those quirky people too that makes the place even more interesting. I love how it laid out and the colours. Really a cool place to have wander around.
The market runs along the side of the Regents Canal towpath, to the north-east of the road bridge on Chalk Farm Road. You have never been to Camden Lock really of you don’t try the global range of foods from hot and spicy Indian foods, greasy Chinese cuisine to the biggest pizza you can imagine up to the heavenly cooked Thai foods. Yum! Plus you have to try sitting on those motorbike seat facing the canal.
I can’t have enough of the place. I am definitely coming back…KEEP coming back. It gives and fills me up with a little of everything. Some shops makes me feel like I am home and some are taking me back to Thailand. Those women shouting at me to try their foods are so Asian like. Some shops are so new to me… some are just weird but cool. It’s a mix of everything. Great experience.
