Why choose Camden?
As a whole, Camden is an interesting, leafy borough, rich in literary history. It has a colourful reputation and is a great place to hang out, and even better, to live in. Set up home here for endless culture, a revolutionary music-scene and to be in the heart of the hustle and bustle.
Living in Camden means I can easily walk to Regents Park (10 mins), Primrose Hill (20 mins), and Hampstead Heath (30 mins – where they have swimming ponds open in the summer!). It also means I rarely have to leave my little town as everything I need is right on my doorstep – food, nightlife, parks, shops and even a zoo!
