When you think of London you think of The Big Ben, the London Eye, the red telephone boxes and black cabs. But besides these super touristy sights there is so much more to see and do in London. One of the best tips we can give you is to leave the city center and to experience the nice neighborhoods that are just beyond. Be sure to visit the neighbourhood Camden to see some cool street art, to buy special design and to taste amazing food.
The Camden area is best known for the Camden Market. This is the place where young designers, artists and designers sell their items for a good price. It is wonderful to stroll around here for a few hours here and to score some unique items. Outside there is a food market and there you get the best food, from pizza to anti-hangover drinks to roti. You name it, and you can eat it here. Visit this market on weekdays, because in the weekend it is very busy.
But besides this beautiful market, Camden High Street is very special to see. The facades of the shops are anything but standard and painted with the coolest street art. That's a lot different than the standard facades of the big chains. Shoes and elephants literally come out of the houses and you can admire the most beautiful paintings. If you would like to see something else except the really touristic sights during your city trip, this is the perfect place for you.
