Welcome to Camden

Camden Town gained its name from Charles Pratt, 1st Earl Camden, in the year 1795, and became the bustling part of London it is today following the development of the Grand Union Canal, and the improvement of the area’s railway system.

Over the years Camden has been a popular inner-London destination for those interested in the arts, from Charles Dickens in 1822 to, in more recent times, playwright Alan Bennett and singer Amy Winehouse. Although formerly championed for its alternative culture, a wave of gentrification from neighbouring Primrose Hill has pushed up Camden’s property prices over the last decade. Camden no longer just attracts young professionals and those involved in the arts and creative industries, but lawyers and media executives seeking a vibrant place to live.

Camden is still famed for its buzzing atmosphere, with too many bars, eateries, edgy art exhibitions and live music venues to mention. Its position on the London Canal Network gained it status as an industrial town, but regeneration has seen areas such as The Camden Lock and Stables Markets being smartened up, creating an expanse of indoor and outdoor stops selling unique clothes, jewellery, bags and food. Camden is now famed for its markets, and visitors travel from far and wide to visit them. The Regent’s Canal running through the area is home to a vast number of restaurants, bars, and clubs, as well as providing a towpath for walkers and cyclists. For those that would rather see the area from the water, regular longboat and canal trips run along Regent’s Canal from Camden Lock.

As one of the premier estate agents selling properties in the area, Marsh & Parsons prides itself on its local know-how. From the best schools in the area to the finest boutiques bars and restaurants and the cost of a resident’s parking permit, agents at Marsh & Parsons have their fingers firmly on the local pulse.
