The local area guide to living in Camden Town

Camden Town is known for its distinctive and alternative, trendy vibe – however, the scene here wasn’t always so vibrant. The region, an inner northern district of London, was set up as a residential area in the late 18th century. Over time, following developments in the transport here, it became one of London’s busiest and coolest spots. In fact, many a celebrity have called Camden Town home, such as Dylan Thomas and Alan Bennett.

Camden Market is one of the most well-known markets in London and draws many from across the city and beyond. It’s not just the market, food, and fashion that people love here though; the music scene is vibrant too. Within Camden Town you’ll find a number of music venues, showcasing a wide variety of performers. Surrounding Camden Town are a whole host of other popular spots, including Euston and King’s Cross – a hub for commuters, and Kentish Town, which is similar to its neighbour but much quieter.

Information about the local residents

The demographic distribution of Camden Town has changed dramatically over the years. Once a working class community that was relatively run-down, it now has hubs of more affluent residential areas – with ex-Labour party leader Ed Miliband having resided in Camden Town too! With the average house price for the London Borough of Camden at £837,550, it's no surprise that the area has begun to attract more and more high earners.

At the time of the 2011 census, Camden Town and Primrose Hill combined with a population of just over 12,500. The London Borough of Camden, on the other hand, was home to over 220,000 residents. Approximately 65% of the population were employed with only 4.4% unemployed. The types of jobs held varied, but over half were in professional occupations or associate professions and technical occupations.

Nearby schools

When it comes to primary and secondary schools in Camden Town, there is plenty of choice. There are 41 primary schools in the area and 11 secondary schools. Three of the highest rated secondary schools in the area are Francis Holland School and The Camden School for Girls, which are girls’ schools, and Acland Burghley School, a mixed school. There are a number of independent schools too, which perform well.

The town also has links with a number of universities and is home to several big university departments. The University of London and University College London both have a presence here – making the area a popular spot among students too.

Getting around

Sat on the central underground network, on the Northern Line, it’s incredibly easy to get around London from Camden Town. With limited parking here, it makes sense to travel via public transportation rather than by car. Buses also run frequently from here and offer yet another alternative. Other nearby tube stations, which are often quieter, include Mornington Crescent and Chalk Farm. Camden is also connected to the London Overground – ideal for those travelling to/from east or west London.

For travel outside of the city, it’s quick and easy to get to one of the train stations situated in the north of London. Options include London Euston, St Pancreas International, and King’s Cross – all of which offer routes across the country.

Local shops

The shopping scene in Camden Town draws tourists from all over the world. The weekends tend to be very busy, but the popular markets are open during the week too – so it’s best to shop mid-week. The markets here include Camden Lock Market, Camden Market, Inverness Street Market, and Stables Market. Among them, the markets sell crafts, clothing, accessories, and food – featuring a wide range of cuisines.

In addition to the markets, there are also a number of shops to enjoy too. Chalk Farm Road is home to many – and one area you certainly won’t want to miss! A range of popular supermarkets sit in Camden Town too, including Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, and Whole Foods Market.
