In the beginning...

This is the market that started it all in back in 1972 with a bohemian collection of outdoor stalls selling esoteric bric a brac. Now considerably tidied up, its indoor and outdoor markets still offer a huge selection of original arts and crafts, original designer clothes, delicious food stalls and boat trips along the canal. A great atmosphere - its the jewel of Camden.

opening times


camden lock at night

Many of the shops and cafes are open throughout the week from about 11am - 6pm daily.

However the market really comes alive at the weekends - with four or five times as many stalls and much more going on.

Take your time to look around - its a sprawling complex and just when you think you've seen it all, you turn another corner and there's more.


Dingwalls and Jongleurs

Camden Lock is also home to the legendary venue Dingwalls - at the cutting edge of the live music scene for 30 years. Bands who've played there recently include: Toploader, Coldplay, Beta Band, White Stripes and Feeder.

Jongleurs is a world famous stand-up comedy club open on both Friday (one show) and Saturday nights (two shows). You can book a table for a sit down meal or order drinks from the bar.
