The borough of Camden covers a large area of North London. It stretches from Kilburn in the west to Highgate in the east, and right down to Bloomsbury and Holborn to the south.
Camden was created in 1965 by the merging of previous metropolitan boroughs Hampstead, Holborn and St Pancras. The borough takes its name from Camden Town – one of its best-known visitor attractions.
The locks, market and iconic music venues in Camden Town add some rock and roll grit and glamour to the otherwise genteel borough of Camden. A magnet for alternative muscial cultures for many decades, Camden Town has enjoyed a facelift over the past few years.
The old market was demolished and replaced by the Hawley Wharf redevelopment programme in 2015. A good selection of other new or refurbished homes have also appeared in greater numbers in the area since.
Its sheer size means that Camden includes a huge number of North London’s visitor attractions. West End venues, such as the Dominion, Bloomsbury and Shatesbury theatres fall within the borough, along with green spaces like Hampstead Heath and Highgate Cemetery.
London Zoo also falls within Camden’s bounds, along with the eastern side of Regent’s Park and the beautiful Primrose Hill park. Prominent buildings include the beautiful St Pancras and King’s Cross railways stations with the adjoining Coal Drops Yard, as well as the British Library and British Museum.
