DescriptionBook this tour, and the supplier will be in touch within 24 hours after booking to find out more about your personality, tastes and interests so we can assign a like-minded Local who can create a bespoke experience for you. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. A provisional tour itinerary can look something like this: 10:00 AM: You'll meet your local at Camden Town Tube Station before heading to explore the sprawling market and former stables; here you can sample some of the best international cuisine from innumerable food stalls that set up shop every morning or you can explore shops that cater to very niche subcultures such as cyber clothing fashioned with bright florescent designs or steampunk, which is inspired Victorian science fiction. There are also shops dedicated to selling authentic Persian rugs, handmade fairy lights, pop culture goods from Tokyo and so much more in the expansive Camden Market that it can be hard to know which way to turn! 12:00 PM: After you have had your fill of the market your local will lead you further along the canal, pointing out the street art dedicated to Amy Winehouse who lived in the neighbourhood on the way to the charming community of Primrose Hill. This was the home of Sylvia Plath and Ted Hughes when they lived in London and also Frederick Engels; today the attractive hidden away street exclusively has independent shops, cafes and restaurants, including a local grocer, butcher, florist, bookshop, French delicatessen and fine wines shop. This is an excellent place to stock up on a selection of cheese and wine before heading up to the top of Primrose Hill, which as the highest hill in London offers some pretty spectacular views of the city. 2:00 PM: If you happen to be in London on New Years Eve or any other major holiday, this is an excellent vantage point to beat the crowds that line the Southbank to see the fireworks. After you’ve properly relaxed and taken in the sites of the city your local will lead you back towards Camden Town via Chalk Farm, pointing out where the best places to see live music are in the many music venues and clubs of the area.
