Camden is notorious for throngs of visitors to the market and the lock with a lively bar scene too.
We have based this day out on the slightly quieter side of Camden, combining a canal walk with the views from Primrose Hill before ending back in busy Camden Market. This is one of the Trambles we have in Camden that you can follow.
head through inverness st market
Head up towards Camden Market but bow out along Inverness Street Market beforehand. We love the exuberant facades on the buildings along the High Street and it is no different along Inverness Street.
into regents park
Then continue along into Regents Park heading through the main path to the water fountain dedicated to Sir Cowasjee Jehangir, a Companion of the Star of India. It's a perfect spot to sit and enjoy the surrounds or head up towards Primrose Hill.
the primrose hill viewpoint
Primrose Hill is a small park to the north of the much larger Regents Park, however it has one of the best views of London. Head up the steep hill to find the William Blake inscriptions and ponder his words while enjoying the view.
If you are a little more prepared you could always bring a boules or petanque set as Primrose Hill has courts available.
Join the regents canal back towards camden
Come down the banks of Primrose Hill and join the Regents Canal back towards Camden Lock. You will join the canal route and be able to peek into the London Zoo. Enjoy the walk and pass the famous pagoda restaurant on the way back to Camden Market.
finish off with some food in the market
The walk along the banks of the canal will lead you back into the busy Camden. Turn left into the food stalls or walk through the markets looking for gifts.
