camden tube

The nearest station is Camden Town tube station on the Northern line - this bring passengers straight out onto Camden High Street - less than a five minute walk to the main markets.

However during the day on Sundays passengers cannot leave via Camden station as it is closed to outgoing passengers because of congestion. You can alight there but you have to leave via Chalk Farm station or Mornington Crescent station

meeting point

Avoid the crowds

The best plan is to leave via Chalk Farm Station, which is on the other side of the markets - that way you get to see everything and avoid the crowds. There are also some very good shops, restaurants and bars between the markets and Chalk Farm that most visitors don't know about and don't get to see.


Where to meet

It is a good idea not to arrange to meet up with fellow visitors outside the station. The area immediately outside the station is extremely crowded and the station itself opens up onto two separate streets so it is difficult to find people there. Arrange to meet in a nearby bar or street corner. See the links below.
