The London Borough of Camden

 
The London Borough of Camden

Camden Camden is one of London's liveliest boroughs and the centre of the capital's underground music scene with a plethora of seductively scuzzy venues. The locks along Regent's Canal are the focus for some London's most varied shopping, with fashion, antiques, music, arts, crafts and bric-a-brac filling this labyrinth of boutiques and markets. In the south of the borough lies picturesque Regent's Park famed for its wonderful open air theatre and London Zoo. For more intellectual pursuits, there is the British Library, whose 150 million books, magazines CDs and DVDs are stored on 625km of shelves.
