Nightsky’s new London trip part 12 – Camdentown, Hampsted, St John's Woods, Islingto

North of central London

This section is about some London boroughs that are situated on the north side of Thames, between the city center and the suburbs.


Camdentown, the center of the borouth Camden, is one of the nicest areas of London. It is popular for young people, especially rock, goth and punk are popular music styles in this district and many people from other cultures. There are record stores, second hand stores, kinky cloth stores and big nightclubs like the 2-story famous Electric Ballroom.

Camden Lock. A famous market where you can buy many exotic and interesting things.

Camden High Street is the main street.

The busy crossing at Camden High Street.


Islington's main street. A calmer version of Camdentown, situated north of central London. We went there witht the Mexican guy we meat at the hostel. Islington is home to the gothic nightclub Slimelight, some nice churches and a town hall.

St John's Woods

Abbey Road. The studio where The Beatles recorded the famous 1969 album with the same name.

Abbey Road. The famous crosswalk where The Beatles crossed at the front cover of the album. The nice people on the bus told us where it was.
It was hard to cross today like The Beatles did, because the traffic has increased some so much since the 60s.


Hampsted is located in the north of London. It is hilly and have a continental feeling. It was also very hot this day, so we went to its park Hampsted Heth with a nice view over London. See more in the parks and skylines sections.
A like means a lot! But one word says more then a thousand likes.
