Because the best rock concerts are here in Camden town. There are plenty of rock bars where you can enjoy your time!
My favorite place is Camden Town Market. It’s like a little village with a lot of little cafes, food courts, and shops where you will find souvenirs. Food is very varied and you will find a lot of interesting things such as big hot dogs, some sweets and other tasty things 😍 Moreover you will find here a lot of beautiful graffiti, that are very bright and interesting!
4. Fourth place is the famous King’s Cross station.
If you are a Harry Potter fan then you must come here!
Actually there is nothing special here… just a platform and the place where Harry Potter from the wall got to his school. People just come here and take pictures. But if you are fan of this film, then you will have great emotions!
