Camden Town is an iconic cultural hotspot of London and a must for anyone staying in or visiting the capital. The area is famous for its markets, its picturesque canal, foods from around the world, but most of all its music. Over the years, the likes of The Rolling Stones, Pink Floyd and Amy Winehouse have all made Camden their home, and today it can still be sensed in its pubs and music venues.
From Koko to The Roundhouse to The Jazz Cafe, Camden has some of the best music venues London has to offer. But it is not all just shopping and nightlife, Camden is also the home of a number of museums, galleries and of course ZDL London Zoo.
