Why Move to Camden?
Arguably one of the most notable destinations in London, Camden is colourful, eccentric, and diverse, packed with alternative shops, bars restaurants and markets.
It is difficult to envisage Camden town as it once was, just a small suburb in the middle of green fields reliant mostly on farming.
Camden’s growth started in the late 1700’s when a new street plan was implemented aimed at attracting the middle classes. However, it was the Regents Canal which opened in 1820 when Camden really took off.
Camden today relies on service industries such as retail, tourism and entertainment, hosting street markets and music venues that are strongly associated with alternative culture.
Now the ‘third largest London economy’ with over half of Camden’s businesses linked to the creative industry.
As you would expect, the town has excellent travel inks. Camden tube station will get you to Charing Cross and Bank and from there pretty much anywhere.
Busses are extremely regular, and the overground station can whisk you to trendy east London in about 20 minutes.
Green areas galore can be reached by foot. Primrose Hill, Regents Park and a little further out is Hampstead Heath.
In fact, there are 70 parks, garden squares and managed grounds within the Camden Borough itself.
London Zoo is just a short walk too, perfect for the kiddies. Amazing considering you are slap bang in central London.
Running through the centre of Camden is its canal. Cycling or walking, a there’s a track which runs all the way from Canary Wharf, through all the cool bits of east London, under Islington, through Camden, across Regent’s Park and out through lovely Little Venice.
If you live here or are visiting, there is no getting away from the local markets five of them in all which characterise the town.
Buck Street market, Stable’s market, Camden Lock village, and an indoor market in the Electric Ballroom. The markets are a major tourist attraction at weekends, selling goods of all types.
Camden Town is a force all of its own and appeals to so many. Vibrant and bustling sitting alongside wonderful green areas acting as an oasis of calm.
Camden Schools & Education
Schools in Camden fall under the Camden Local Education Authority.
With over 40 primaries and 10 secondaries, state education is well provided for across the Borough. Alternatively, there is a host of private schools catering for children of all ages.
Richard Cobden Primary School, Abacus Belsize Primary School, The Camden School for Girls and The St Marylebone C of E School are all “outstanding” state schools’ reports Ofsted.
Further education can be found at five local institutions including the LaSWAP the oldest, largest, and most vibrant sixth form consortium in London. Consisting of four closely linked sixth forms which operate together to provide an effective transition from school to higher education offering a wide choice of courses.
Some of London’s best universities are located in the Borough of Camden. They include the headquarters of the University of London, Birkbeck, part of the campus of the London School of Economics. The latter concentrates on teaching and research across the full range of social, political, and economic sciences.
Things to do in Camden
Camden rises to another level when it comes to entertainment. It explodes with choice which is as diverse as its inhabitants.
Impossible to list everything but here are a few of what are seen to be the best bits that Camden Town Offers:
Camden Market – Being the fourth most visited tourist attraction in the country, Camden Market delivers when it comes to shopping, it is an experience all of its own. Selling absolutely everything. Food, crafts, clothing, antiques, shoes, and a million other items.
Camden Canal – Running right through the town, it is a hub for the area. Whether it is a walk, cycle ride, exercise or just to sit and have a glass of wine and watch the comings and goings, it is the heart of Camden. Take a leisurely sail along the Regent’s Canal on one of the waterbuses, a great way to see the area.
Pubs & Restaurants – A magnate for all, you could eat in a different place every day for a month and still not have sampled every eatery in Camden. From street food to high end dining, it’s all here.
Primrose Hill & Regents Park – Both close by and both idyllic retreats from the frenetic activity of Camden Town. Offering great views across London and space for the children to run wild, they are iconic local green areas, much loved and much used.
Music Venues – Camden is also known for its many music venues; Jazz Café, the Roundhouse, The Underworld, Koko are just a few of the more notable places where you can enjoy a massive choice of music types and styles.
Further afield, a short walkway, are the wonderfully varied Hampstead Heath, the new King’s Cross commercial quarters, and the picturesque neighbourhood of Little Venice.
Set in an urban landscape rich in historical styles including elegant Georgian houses, grand Victorian and Edwardian terraces, charming cottages, converted warehouses and workshop apartments, modern housing blocks from 1060s, and newly built homes often in boutique, pocket developments.
It is this amalgamation of property styles which only adds to Camden Town’s charm, enhancing its credentials as a welcoming neighbourhood that embraces change.
Being an affluent district, inevitably property prices are astronomical with the average price paid for a home over the last year just touching £1,000,000.
Warehouse conversions and loft-style apartments flooded the market in the 1980s and 1990s and they remain some of the hottest property today.
Council blocks dominate in the south, yet to the north, Victorian and Georgian houses offer stylish homes for those with an income to match the hype.
