What To Do In Autumn In Camden Town
Camden is a part of London that is full of creativity and is buzzing with energy, a unique vibe that you are not likely to find in other parts of the city. Sometimes referred to as the musical mecca of Britain, Camden town is a popular place for being the playground of superstars like Amy Winehouse and is where bands like Madness and Coldplay were formed. Camden was also the watering hole for band members of Oasis and Blur in the ’90s. The Good Mixer pub was once thought to be where the feud between the two bands started.
Camden Town is easy to reach whether you are travelling by bus, tube, or walking. If you are walking, it is about 30 minutes from King’s Cross and about 40 minutes from Oxford Street. So, try to explore the town while visiting in Autumn. The town is never short of places to visit and things to do.
