Insiders Guide to Camden Town

Local Coffee places
Having lived in Sydney, Rosa and I both love our coffee and have hunted down the best coffee places in the area for you to enjoy.
The coffee jar is on the way too Regents park and is a great little spot to stop for a sanck and a coffee. It's particularly nice when it's warm outside and you can park up on the outside seating to soak up the sunshine

Local Sights
There are few spots around the area that we love to take people when they visit and these are our favourites
Highgate, specifically the west cemetery is definitely worth a visit. It's a beautiful place to visit and full of so much history. The west side is only available to see via guided tour but it's not expensive and the guides are always very animated and tell great stories. They really bring the Victorian history to life.

The Heath is a massive park north of camden town that's great to wander around in the summer time, it's a wild park that in the summer has swimming pools to cool off if you're really keen.

While neither of us are very big fans of camden market and the way it's been developed into a bit of a tourist trap, the part of the market that is right up against the canal contains a whole collection of food stalls. These are a good spot for a quick lunch if you're in the area, particularly during the week however on the weekend it's not somewhere we'd recommend.

The coal drops yard is a beautiful new development of an old industrial site on regents canal and definitely worth a visit. There are some great places to eat dring and browse if you're looking for something to take home with you.

London Markets
London is a city full of markets big and small. They range from farmers markets focusing on fresh produce to food stalls selling freshly made bites to eat and drinks. We visit them regularly and are never disappointed
Mare street market is an indoor market that during the day has a number of fixed shops selling cheese, wine and knick knacks along with some drinks and food. In the evening it becomes a lovely bar with some good food options. Its almost always busy but you should be able to squeeze in if you hang around for a bit with a drink. It's a good option when the weather is bad to hide away and keep warm

Maltby Street Market is a blast, always busy and mostly full of food and drink stalls to have there it's one of our favourite spots to take visitors. A great local alternative to Borough Market that's less busy on the weekend

This is definitely on the produce end of the spectrum compared to some.other markets, it has great fruit and veg from local UK farms. There are also usually also a few spots doing food to have there so you won't go away hungry

Food Scene
London's food scene is truly amazing, with all the styles and cuisines you could possibly ask for. There are too many great spots to list but I've named a few local highlights
Dishoom is more institution than restaurant. London's love of great and authentic Indian good manifests itself perfectly here. The restaurant makes delicious and authentic Indian food in a colonial far east setting. Is great for dinner but prepare to line up if you don't go early, otherwise they do brunch which is also great.

A super local continental deli style Bar serving awesome natural wines by the glass (BIB - bag in box). they also have a chalkboard menu that's made up of innovative small plates. the decor is quirky but fun and the workers are super accommodating.

A fish and chip shop that stands out from the crowd by using different batters and fish. Not usually too busy so a good one to drop in as long as you're not too big a group.

Pizzeria Di Camden
195 Royal College St
Some of the best french produce and wine in the whole of London and that's saying something. All served with some of the friendliest service you'll find in a big city. This one is a bit out of the way but a good stop if you're exploring north of home around Hampstead or elsewhere
