During our street art tour we got to see a lot of Camden. It’s a really cool area that was completely different from the central London that I’m used to! I could definitely see myself living in an area like that. Plus, after hearing our tour guide talk about the revitalizing of the area, I bet it will be an even cooler place to live! There was this one little street that we walked down that had a row of colored houses that were adorable. New dream homes? I think yes.
See?? Aren’t they adorable??!
There were some other cool streets in the area.

We then ventured over to Camden Lock Market. I had no prior expectations, not really knowing anything about it. But man was it huge. There was no way we saw close to half of it and we were meandering / struggling through the massive crowds for over an hour! There were tons of vintage stores, several music stores or stores selling items relating to music (e.g. records, clocks made out of old records and 8 tracks, etc), we spent a while at an antique book store and then way too long looking at the doughnut/cronut stand (we each got two #noshame).
Unfortunately, deep inside the market, pictures weren’t allowed in most places. But the pictures I could take show some pretty cool stuff. They sold pretty much everything. It was slightly very overwhelming, and the masses of people made it even moreso but I’m so glad I got to experience it!

|I love these. They had so many varieties (not just dealing with HRH)|
|More Amy Winehouse tributes!!|
|One of my doughnuts. YUM.|
It turned out to be such a beautiful day (even though it was freezing and I still don’t think I’ve completely thawed out… I kinda wish there was snow, but I’ll take the sun instead! It was nice to get out of the centre of London for a day and experience something completely new. I’m not sure if I’ll have enough time to make it back up to Camden before I leave (my to-do list is still growing which is becoming a problem) so I’m glad I got the chance to see it in a different way, through its street art :)
