  WHAT’S LIVING IN Camden Town LIKE?

"Sophistication with a little bit of edge" is a good way to sum up Camden Town. Gone are the days when it is characterized only by punk music and grunge. Today it's an exciting place for young adults to live and work and it brings in a diverse group of people. There are bankers, painters, teachers, lawyers, pianists, bakers, and even future rock stars living side by side on these streets. Many of the current residents were once the punks and partiers who aged out but stayed put. Today they have families and young children, so the community is really evolving.

The neighborhood is filled with picturesque houses and plenty of amenities. It has several markets, fashion boutiques, salons, spas, gyms, libraries, cinema, theater, and even specialized learning spaces. Organic supermarkets and parks now ensure that the area is great for families. If you have a sweet tooth, there are a number bakeries and cafes to get your fix.At night the clubs, restaurants, and active street cafes really change the overall feel of the area.

The housing recently went through a major overhaul, so a lot of the apartments are modern and have the newest amenities. This one of the few areas in London where you will find a good mixture of apartments, lofts, and actual homes. In fact, a large majority of the places to live here actually have more than two bedrooms, which is rare thing.

Camden Town also benefits from the areas around it: stores, shops, bars, boutiques, and other amenities are just a short stroll away in almost any direction.

Camden Town is bordered on the north by Chalk Farm, on the east by Barnsbury, on the south by Regent's Park and Kings Cross, and on the west by Primrose Hill.
