We are lucky to have offices in a thriving area of London. Our Company Manager, Leticia, offers her perspective on the best things to do in Camden.
Most people have heard something about Camden — it’s a very popular tourist destination, and not without reason!
Camden’s streets are buzzing with energy; from vendors advertising their newest arrivals to tattooists attempting to persuade the nearest person to get a tattoo or piercing, with a cheeky reminder that boys don’t cry! You don’t need to listen too closely to hear the mélange of languages circling the air, as the aromas from different countries’ cuisines waft by. Camden, rich with culture, is a great place to visit if you haven’t already!
Accessible via Chalk Farm, Mornington Crescent and of course Camden Town underground stations, the stalls and stands stretch over one long road where you can also find shops as diverse as its customers. The market is a must-see destination, especially if you enjoy discovering foods and routes (really, it can feel like a maze if it’s your first time). Although the food can be a little costly, it’s well worth it, and it would be surprising if you didn’t find at least one thing that you can happily tuck into.
You can find guilty pleasures like mac and cheese and hot dogs. Ask any of the regulars in Camden, and they’ll probably tell you about the vast range of options for vegans and vegetarians, including stands for falafel, soup, vegan burgers, a restaurant named Mildred’s and halloumi (vegetarian). If you enjoy a good pint or a glass of wine from time to time, why not visit one of the pubs in Camden? There are Wetherspoons pubs or traditional family pubs like The Oxford Arms.
A popular restaurant in Camden, Shaka Zulu, which calls itself the “Theatre of Food” serves exotic dishes, including “crocodile cigars” and wild boar tenderloins. The Titanium Tutors office is located right next to this restaurant, and you've probably already visited us here if you’re one of our tutors!
Near Chalk Farm station is a theatre named Roundhouse where you’ll often find people queuing up to watch a performance. On the other side, closer to Camden Town station there’s another venue named The Electric Ballroom where you can watch musical performances along with other shows. You can also find less formal performances outside the station where buskers can be found strumming away at their guitars or beatboxing. Sometimes dancers dominate the pavements with their exciting moves and adding to the general atmosphere of excitement in Camden.
Even if you don’t wish to spend much when you’re in Camden, just walking down the road and across the selection of bridges can be an enriching experience, with the amount of artwork on the streets and even on people who like to express themselves with body art eccentric hairstyles. Standing on the bridge you’ll get a front-row view of boats gliding over the waters when the lock opens.
When you have a free day, I’d certainly recommend visiting this quirky town — you just might find something for you!
