What to do around our area
Camden Lock is one of London's most vibrant shopping and entertainment areas with live music and comedy venues, café's and bars. Clustered in and around the award-winning Market Hall, you'll find small shops and market stalls selling everything from vintage fashion, handmade jewellery and beautiful homewares sourced from around the globe.
Cyberdog's clothing range is famous throughout the known universe - and pretty popular in the unknown universe as well! Chi Chi the Space Chihuahua invented the brand when he crash landed on Earth at the end of the 20th century. He noticed the available clothing was too boring - the people of Earth surely deserved something more exciting! The result was a mash up of techno funky colours and cutting edge future shock, which inspired a generation of clubbers and space cadets alike! Cyberdog has since morphed into a brand with a more accessible urban underground vibe, which can only be expected from a company with its roots now firmly established in London's coolest hot spot, Camden Town.
The Roundhouse is a hub of inspiration where artists and emerging talent create extraordinary work and where young people can grow creatively as individuals. We believe in the power of creativity to change lives. By giving young people the chance to engage with the arts through our music, media and performance projects, we inspire them to reach further, dream bigger, and achieve more. We do this because we believe creativity gives us freedom, hope and has the power to transform.

KOKO is a concert venue and former theatre in Camden Town, London. The building was known as Camden Palace from 1982 until its 2004 purchase and extensive restoration led by Oliver Bengough and Mint Entertainment.

Madonna has returned to KOKO since her historic show. The Elton John AIDS Foundation held their star-studded 'Move for AIDS' fundraiser here in 2007.

Yumchaa began out of necessity. Although tea is the drink that fuels England, we struggled to find a decent brew anywhere in London! Fed up with tasteless, low grade tea bags served badly, we set out on a mission to bring England the tea it deserves. We travelled the world looking for inspiration, blending and brewing until we dropped and of course drinking many, many cups of tea. In 2004, we set up a Yumchaa market stall which quickly became a haven for tea lovers to talk tea, try tea and buy tea. Determined to rid the world of mediocre cups of tea, we now have several busy London cafés and and online shop which ships our blends to our tasty tea lovers worldwide.
