A major part of my misspent youth was wasted hanging out at the very cool Camden Market.
Set in North London, this market is now open 7 days a week although remains at its busiest during the weekends. Set on and around the canal, it is full of trendy stalls with some of the wackier designer clothes, music, hippyesque handicrafts from around the World, antiques, and an excellent array of cheap food stalls reflecting London´s multiculturalism.
I still regularly visit and every time i return, the market-place continues to expand.
There are several traditional pubs and coffeeshops to be found nearby, and the walk along the canals is always a pleasant experience providing the weather is dry.
