Saturday was a trip to Hampton Court for more perfect weather, lovely gardens and castle exploration. Sunday was another, very Londony day.

Chief Adventurer was all about his educational tourism and decided to dedicate his day to a trip to the RAF (Royal Air Force) Museum. As much as I love a good museum, it was no thanks for me. The weather that Goddess had turned on and the chance to bask was an opportunity I just couldn’t pass up.

Le Monsieur and I took Goddess to Camden and boy did she put on a show!

The Camden markets are a number of large, connected retail markets in Camden Town, often collectively named “Camden Market” or “Camden Lock, selling everything from crafts and clothing to bric-a-brac, and fast food.

Whilst there, we took a look at:

  • The Stables Market – This is the largest section of the market. With no chain stores allowed this is also in my opinion the quirkiest. We left, only for it to set on fire the next day. What luck!
  • Camden Lock Village – Apparently opened as the original arts and crafts market; a makeshift collective of workshops and traders that sell an eclectic mix of jewellery, paintings, candles and more.
  • Buck Street Market – This is an outdoor market focusing on clothes.

If you’re going to be in Camden Market, you can’t miss out on a visit to Primrose Hill, one of North West London’s most cherished views. It’s a short 10 minute walk from the main market area, either following the canal, or via Regents Park village, a favourite home for artists and creatives through Camden’s rich history.

As we wandered up to Primrose Hill via Regent’s Park Village, we came cross a village fete, alive with produce, delicious handmade treats and plenty of people. The vibe was relaxed despite the crowds and there were plenty of sunbathers, ice cream eaters and coffee drinkers out and about and enjoying the beautiful weather. Thanks Goddess.
