Camden Town Tour
Join Free Tours By Foot as we explore one of London’s most vibrant areas: Camden. Built around canals and boasting some of the capital’s best market stalls, Camden is a must-see for visitors who are looking to get familiar with the alternative side of London.
Catapulted into ’60’s counter-culture consciousness by Pink Floyd’s concert at the Roundhouse, Camden Town took over from Soho as London’s bohemian, artistic and musical epicentre in the ’80’s. ’90’s and naughties. Just a few miles away from London’s tourist sights but light years away in spirit, Camden must be seen to be believed.
Join our 2 – 2.5 hour tour through London’s Rock ‘n’ Roll, Punk, Indie, Pop and youth culture mecca. We’ll stroll along the Regent’s Canal, browse Camden’s world famous independent markets; a fashionistas, foodies and bargain hunters paradise, explore the area’s Street Art scene and hear the stories of the venues and characters that made rock history.
Camden is the perfect place for dinner, an evening out listening to the latest sounds and the stars of tomorrow, and clubbing for the night owls. Our guides will help you get the most out of this legendary London borough.
