Just a few stops north of Tottenham Court Road on the Northern Line you arrive at bustling Camden Town. Camden Town is outside the congestion zone so, if you or your guests wish to drive to the venue, you won’t need to pay any additional fees. Parking, on the other hand, is another matter. It is notoriously difficult to find parking in Camden Town. Your best bet is to encourage guests to use taxis, buses, trains (to Camden Road station) or the tube which stops right near the Camden Market.
While it’s all about strolling the markets and shopping during the day, at night Camden Town fills up for a different reason, which is live music and entertainment. Camden’s music scene is popular among Londoners with venues like Koko, the Underworld, Electric Ballroom, Jazz Café or Blues Kitchen full just about every night of the week. There’s also the Camden Highlight for comedy. Want more? For some fringe theatre, check out the Etcetera Theatre.
