Camden Town Property AreaOne thing’s for sure – Camden has buckets of character.

All things to all people, this area of London is a huge melting pot of influences, housing and amenities. To say it has universal appeal would be an understatement.

Cosmopolitan, cool, creative and crammed with excellent eateries, bars and clubs, the area has a big buzz to it. On the other hand, the close proximity of Camden property to green spaces and the posh Primrose Hill gives it plenty of appeal for those who want something a bit more upmarket with a villagey feel. Add excellent travel connections and access to a selection of good schools into the mix and you’ve got an incredibly attractive prospect.

Whatever you’re looking for, you’d be hard pushed not to find it here.

Camden proves the old saying – if you’re bored of London, you’re bored of life. If you want a stimulating place to live, this area should definitely be on your hitlist.

Property Types

Camden property falls into all sorts of different camps. Take your pick between tons of flats, which come in everything from new builds to period conversions and ex-local authority categories. Whether you’re looking to rent or buy, there’s plenty of scope in this particular part of town.

Check out the luxury flats along the canal for a cool £400k. For those on a more modest budget, there are purpose built apartment blocks and the neighbouring area of Tufnell Park. There are shared ownership schemes to take advantage of too.

Families and those looking for a house as opposed to a flat can choose between Victorian and Georgian 3, 4 and 5-bed terraces for around £480k and up.

Top Attractions

There are plenty of reasons to pick a Camden property. This part of London is home to one of the most famous markets in the world. Camden Market is a treasure trove bursting with retro shoes, vintage clothing, jewellery, arts, crafts and antiques.

Amenities

Pick a Camden property and you’ll have access to literally every type of amenity you can think of. Decent sized supermarkets can often be hard to come by the closer you get to the centre of London, but Camden has a fair-sized Sainsbury’s slap bang in the middle of town. Night owls are incredibly well served by the area’s social scene. Some of London’s most legendary bars, clubs and concert venues can be found here. You’ve got the notorious Camden Palace, which plays host to big bands, club nights and comedians every week. Then there’s famous pubs like the Purple Turtle and the Marathon Bar – the place that’s pretty much guaranteed to still be open well into the wee small hours. Not to mention cinemas and the excellent Roundhouse theatre.

Foodies will love the excellent selection of organic delis and restaurants that come with Camden property. Let’s put it this way – you certainly won’t starve! Even the pubs have excellent food. A short walk to Primrose Hill will introduce you to the brilliant Sunday roasts served in The Prince of Wales.

Let’s not forget schools and green spaces. Families are well served by what the Camden property market has to offer. Regent’s Park is within walking distance and has a zoo for the kids.

Travel Links

Served by the Northern line, Camden connects the north and south sides of the city. There are three tube stations – Camden Town itself, Mornington Crescent and Chalk Farm. All of which are within Zone 2. The area is served by a brilliant bus service. If you want easy access to the city and the West End, you’ve got it.

Drivers considering buying or renting Camden property will be pleased to hear it’s possible to get around and out of London easily.

You’ve also close to a couple of the city’s big mainline railway stations – Euston and King’s Cross. These stations run services right up to Scotland. Or you could hop over to Paris on the Eurostar from St Pancras. Convenience and excellent travel links make this area an excellent choice from those who want to get around with minimum fuss.
