Camden

I really want to live there now. Someone I know went there and said it has the best selection of shops!! There is a shop there called High Jinks, don't know if anyone is familiar with it, but that is the only place to get the jacket I really really want!

Does anybody live near Camden?

    Hehe, I love the assumption that I actually have a clue where that is! Theonly places I can navigate in London are Richmond and Surbiton!

    Don't live there but I go when I go to London, which is easy to get to from where I live. There's a shop called Punky Fish which sells lots of brightly coloured clubbing clothes; interesting designs, very nice!

    Yeah I sometimes go shopping there when I go up to London.
    It's good, but you get bored of it..all the shops are kind of the same. Camden Lock's quite cool, if you like the whole PVC and gothic stuff! But it's interesting at least...
    I think Camden is the most exciting when your're a dope smoking 14yr old. It's still a good place though...I like it.

    There's also a big High Jinks in the Thomas Neals centre on Neal Street next to Covent Garden. The High Jinks in Camden is relatively new. It's pretty expensive though...

    Oh yeah, I love Covent Garden too!

    I really like going to London. My friend works on the trains and goes to London everyday but she has never had the chance to look around. Last time I went my brother got mugged (he was 13) and the last time my boyfriend went to see a band play him and his friends got followed back to the hotel by someone trying to sell them drugs and a huge fight broke out.

    So our experiences aren't too good and we're scared to go back, lol!

    LOL that sums up how i feel about it too. I LOVED it as a dope smoking 14/15/16 year old, but kind of lacks interest for me now. its all London and thats a bad thing.

    its pretty overrated. if you like baggies and hoodies you'll be in heaven. but there is nothing else. at all. and they are all pretty much the same too. like someone else said, its heaven for 15 year old dope smokers but i grew out of camden pretty quick. its a hole.

    its got quite a cool vibe ill give it that, very laid back and chilled (except the dealers constantly hastling you, also dont buy from anyone there in the street you WILL get mugged).

    other than that, very overrated.

    Ok, so I don't want to live there, that was an exaggeration. I just want that pink jacket from High Jinks!

    I didn't realise that people actually peddled drugs on the street in Camden so i was well shocked with all the shifty lookin guys in the doorways! I guess that's just my naive out of town way though!

    camden rocks. It has some really cool shops but frankly it is a TAD over rated. the market is pretty bland everyone says its cool but the only thing i find interesting is the conversations I have with the sellers! I prefer other areas of london like Leicester Square or Oxford street. I used to love convent garden but the stuff is so expensive.
