travel photos: camden markets

A must-do when you’re in London is a trip to Camden Markets. If not for the markets, then for the food (so much food! If only I had three stomachs). The first time I went (yes, I went more than once) was on a weekday, so it was relatively quiet. ‘Relatively’ being the key word. Much like the rest of London, even on a weekday it was still quite busy. While most of the outside markets can get a bit samey, the markets in the Horse Stables were much more to my liking – especially for op-shop and vintage type fare. The second time I went was on a Saturday and it was much busier – more people, more hawking, more pushing and shoving. The upside was that the Electric Ballroom was open and had market stalls inside (even though they were pretty average). While I didn’t get to go to a gig there, at least I could say that I had been inside it. On a slightly sombre note, the second time I visited the markets also happened to be on the same fateful day that Amy Winehouse was found dead at her Camden Square home. Creepy. Anyway, I must write a disclaimer that most of my travel posts won’t be featuring much fashion as such – no photos of me looking whimsical along the Thames or the Champs Elysees, sorry. My travel wardrobe consisted mostly of jeans and tees and whatever was clean on the day. I didn’t even pack any pleated or midi length skirts. I know, I couldn’t believe it either.

    Ahh, you took some pretty great photos! I love Camden locks, the chinese street food there is the best! This is where I'm going to be spending Saturday afternoon – my friend lives in London, but she's never actually been!

    @Christina: IN CAPS IS THE ONLY WAY TO TALK ABOUT ME SEEING NOEL FIELDING lol. There are PLENTY more photos to come, trust me.

    @REread: there was even a giant horse head. I wish I had gotten a photo of that.

    @Rachel: If I lived in London I would be there every weekend to try out the food at every single stall haha

    @Florence: Have fun! It's awesome.

    @Sally: oh, to be in London again. Camden is truly one of my favourites.

    OH, I love these pictures! Now I'm sad I didnt go there when in London. I only did Portobello Road and Covent Garden…

    Excuse me, what's this about you seeing a certain Mister Fielding?

    Don't make me hate you.

    You've made me miss London again; Camden is such a brilliant place to visit, gotta love all the food huts, "TRY SOME, TRY SOME!"

    Looking forward to more London posts! x

    When I looked at your profile it says that you are from Australia and then I noticed that you were travelling, this must be amazing! It looks like you've managed to catch some pretty awesome things, like glasto and wimbledon. I hope you are having a wonderful time my sweet!
