With a huge selection of vibrant markets and food stalls stretching down the High Street and up Chalk Farm Road, it’s no surprise that Camden Town is quickly becoming a top tourist attraction for young people around the world – thanks to Amy Winehouse, who called Camden Square home and is often seen on graffiti around the area. Once a cheap and run-down area popular with up-and-coming artists and creatives, Camden Town has transformed beyond recognition over the past few decades, with run-down period houses renovated and former industrial buildings converted into modern lofts that are available to rent in Camden.
