Camden is one of London’s most eclectic boroughs, famous for the Camden punks who just to adorn the bridge over the canal. Camden Town today is still associated with alternative culture. However, the area has seen gentrification. Whilst there are some who are against Camden developing as a borough, others have welcomed changes that have brought new business to the area and boosted Camden’s popularity as a place to live in inner London.

Tourism in Camden

Camden itself is a tourism magnet – from the market to the loch on Regent’s Canal, you can expect to meander past tourists galore. 28 million visitors a year, in fact. Camden Town is recognised for its shopping, live music and pubs. Amy Winehouse, Pink Floyd, Madness and Blur all hailed the borough in venues such as The Roundhouse, The Dublin Castle and The Jazz Café.

One of the most popular tourist attractions in Camden is the famous London Zoo. Home to tigers, gorillas and penguins, ZSL London Zoo is one of the UK’s favourites and brings countless tourists to Camden year on year.

Living in Camden

Camden, as a borough, tends to be split into north and south. Southern parts of Camden include Holborn, Bloomsbury and King’s Cross. The northern areas of Camden such as Hampstead, Hampstead Heath and Kentish Town tend to be less densely developed than Camden Town itself.

The property available in Camden varies from high-rise council flats to luxury gated mansions – there is simply something for everyone. Developments and warehouse renovations are constant in the borough and the northern areas are by far the most popular to live in if you have some cash to burn.

Camden is often considered a major hub for retail businesses. Whilst this is true, its southern roots of King’s Cross, Holborn and Bloomsbury are situation in the London Central Activities Zone. There are some huge organisations that call the borough of Camden home, including Cancer Research UK, the British medical Association and Trades Union Congress. ASOS, Dr Martens, British Heart Foundation and Ricoh Europe also boast headquarters in Camden.
