History of Camden

The Regent's Canal runs through the north end of Camden Town; its 8.5 mile towpath, which passes through London Zoo, is a pleasant and popular walk in summer. Boat trips along the canal, from Camden Lock, are also very popular. One of the many canal bridges, Macclesfield bridge, is known as "Blow-up bridge": it was the site of London's largest pre-war explosion, where a barge laden with gunpowder blew up in 1874.

Camden Lock is a traditional manually-operated double canal lock operating between widely separated levels. A large complex of weekend street markets has mushroomed there since the 1970s, making one of the biggest tourist attractions in London.

Not far away is Regent's Park, formerly Henry VIII's hunting chase. There are spectacular rose gardens in bloom in the spring, a boating lake. London Zoo is at the north of the park.

The Roundhouse is a railway building constructed in 1847 for the London and Birmingham Railway. It had various uses and eventually became derelict and was converted to a music venue in the 1960s. Since its re-opening in 2006 it has once again become one of London's leading cultural venues, as a theatre and music venue.

There are a great many shops, bars, restaurants and cafes. The area south of the tube station is typical of a London High Street; towards the north we find the markets and attractions typical of the area.

The area has many properties ranging from ex-council flats to large houses with gardens. It is extremely popular and has many restaurants, bars, music venues and clubs. There are also plenty of green spaces in the area with Regent’s Park, Primrose Hill and not too far away, Hampstead Heath.
