Before directing your moving van to Camden Town, you should know what awaits you in this ex-Kentish Town territory. Simply knowing that it is a favoured residential spot in London is hardly enough, give yourself some more reasons to want to move there and pay a moving company to get you there. Luckily for you, there are answers right here. Read below and understand why this part of the London Borough of Camden is such a favoured spot for so many Londoners and why it is also one of the more important economical location in the city.
The Camden Markets
As far as economy goes, you cannot mistake Camden with any other area of London because of its huge variety (and amounts and size) of markets. The area is famous for its street markets ever since the 1970s and for almost half a century now has been providing visitors and residents with the best produce, flowers, and all sorts of tourist-preferred items, such as souvenirs, books, antiques, and so on. And let’s not forget all the hippie clothes you can find right here! Visit the Camden Lock Marketos, the Buck Street Market, the Camden Lock Village, the Electric Ballroom, or any of the other great locations for tourists and residents alike.
Camden Town is a key intersection for many London areas and that is why it has some of the best transport options you will be able to find in the City. Whether you seek transport via train, tube, road, or even boat, the area has all options with excellent links to neighbouring areas and further down. Camden is famous for many things, but isolation is never one of them.
Feeling up for some culture? Well, if you direct the house relocation to Camden, you get a chance to make daily visits to the wonderful performing arts venue that is The Roundhouse. It is historically an old railway station which has been completely transformed into something more commercially usable, but also infinitely entertaining, depending on what kind of arts you like. Are you into music? Well, The Roundhouse is absolutely for you then, as this is the number one concert venue in the area and something you should not miss out on.
And if you want inspiration to drive the removal van over to Camden Town, then you can read about any of the number of people who have lived here because of all its amenities and options for entertainment and leisure. Charles Dickens has had two houses in London right here, in Camden. Writer Bernard Levin, often spoken highly of as being among the “most famous journalists of this day” lived here as well. And while on the topic of literature, Dylan Thomas himself lived his last years in the area, in a house which is immortalised in his name with a memorial plaque. And if you want more mainstream inspiration and commercial fame, then know that Camden Town was the choice of home for actress Gwyneth Paltrow and then husband Chris Martin, as well as the quite popular Amy Whinehouse – in fact, Camden is where she was found after her alcohol poisoning.
And there you have it. History, economy, transport, culture and literature, all in one. This is what Camden Town is – something for everybody. It will always have something to offer its residents, so becoming one is hardly the worst idea you could have. Start working with the movers and get your moving van to Camden so that you can start enjoying life here as soon as possible.
