What makes this tour special

Explore the eclectic, Bohemian and vibrant neighbourhood of London’s Camden Town, famous for its vintage markets, counter-culture, Camden Lock, Amy Winehouse, the Jewish Community, and its thriving live music scene. 

On your private tour you will:

On this walking tour, you will explore the sites and history of one of London’s most creative and alternative areas. Visit illustrious music venues, uncover the best hang-outs in the area once frequented by the likes of Amy Winehouse, explore the canal that intersects the neighbourhood, visit former horse stables and even see one of London’s most stunning parks, all within a mile radius! 

Begin your tour on the buzzing high street and learn about the origins of Camden’s music scene: from the early 20th Century wave of Irish Folk music, the rise of Rock and Roll during the 60s and 70s to the innovative, varied music scene of the 90s.

See where the biggest artists played, from Pink Floyd and Jimi Hendrix to the Doors, Black Grape and Radiohead. Learn about the history behind the historic Electric Ballroom as well as the more recent and alternative Jazz Cafe.

Visit the eclectic Camden Market, where you can buy anything from homemade phone cases shaped liked hamburgers and military paraphernalia to music memorabilia and fluorescent lycra. Explore the famous Stables Market, a former ‘horse-hospital’ full of interesting bits and bobs and often frequented by the famous and flamboyant. 

Take a walk along the historic Regent’s Canal at Camden Lock. Once a teaming waterway used for transporting goods from Limehouse in the east into London, the Canal is now a place of relaxation where you will find people having picnics, walking their dogs and enjoying the sun in the summer.

Learn about the fascinating locomotive origins of the Camden Roundhouse – a magnificent piece of 19th-century architecture and now a Grade II listed building and popular music venue for the world’s best indie, rock and alternative artists. 

Next, take a stroll up to leafy Primrose Hill, an area where you will find plenty of quality restaurants and one of the city’s best parks, perfect for spending a relaxing evening whilst watching the sunset!
