There’s lots to see and do in Camden but here are nine of our favourites. There’s boat trips, umbrella streets, pubs and famous instagrammable streets.

We also have an article on the best 6 places to eat and drink in Camden.

Have a wander through the instagrammers favourite colourful umbrella street and have a shop, the umbrella street is situated at the back of Camden Market. 

2. Hawley's Wharf

HAWLEYS WHARF CAMDEN 1

This is another little market situated in Camden market down one of the side walks; they sell freshly baked goods, breads, cakes & sweet treats. They also showcase lots of independent businesses so it’s worth having a look when you visit Camden. 

3. Camden's Love Locks

LOVE LOCKS CAMDEN 1

Alongside the river there is a little bridge which is full of padlocks. The idea is that you write your initials on your own padlock, lock it on the bridge and throw the key in the river as a declaration of your love. A lovely, romantic thing to do in Camden if you go with a partner.

4. Boat ride from Camden to Little Venice

Enjoy a relaxing boat ride from Camden to Little Venice with lots to see a long the way. This will set you back around £11 per person and will roughly last around two hours. 

5. Camden's Rainbow Crossing

RAINBOW CROSSING CAMDEN 1

This colourful rainbow walkway is directly outside The Elephants Head Pub which was laid down to celebrate pride month and to support LGBTQ+ communities. If you choose to take some snaps on the vibrant walkway then use hashtag #WeMakeCamdenProud to stand in solidarity with LGBTQ+. 

6. Camden Street Art

STREET ART CAMDEN 1

Appreciate all of the inspiring street art work and take a look at all of the graffitied walls which you’ll find down every street along with a row of gorgeous multi-coloured houses. Again, these are a favourite hotspot for instagrammers! Be mindful that you don’t go on bin-day as the entire road will just be full of bins making it hard for you to get that insta-shot. 

7. Turkish-Delight

TURKISH-DELIGHT CAMDEN 1

This is one of the most beautiful Turkish lamp shops you’ve ever seen. You can’t miss it, the vibrancy of all of the lamps together is so stunning, you can’t resist taking a few snaps when you’re there, it’s quite impressive.

8. Camden's Colourful Shop Fronts
