Day Out: Camden Market, Primrose Hill and Regents Park

Hope you are all enjoying your bank holiday weekend so far! Today, as the weather was the perfect summers day, sunny with a fresh breeze, I decided to take a walk. I started at Camden Town walking through Camden Market, Primrose Hill and Regents Park before getting the tube home from Baker Street. Prepare yourself for a lot of photos in this blog post, which I hope you enjoy as much as enjoyed taking them!

Camden Shop Fronts

When I first arrived at Camden Town the first thing that caught my eye was the bold shop displays. All brightly coloured, some with impressive 3D features which you can’t help but admire.

Camden Lock

Nothing beats a stroll down a river to clear your mind! I love the mixture of buildings covered by weeping willow trees.

Camden Market

Camden Market, a historical market with cobbled streets filled with delicious food and antique treasures. Walking through the market feels like travelling back in time. There were a couple of shops that stood out to me including a dress shop selling stunning 1960’s dresses with petticoats and a shop filled with cereals which my sister would adore! Does anyone else know anybody who is addicted to cereal?

Walk to Primrose Hill

The walk from Camden Market to Primrose Hill only takes ten minutes. You start walking along the canal, as you fill your worries melt away and then you before walk through a street filled with beautiful colourful houses!

Primrose Hill

When I entered the park all I could see was grass and trees. I almost forgot that I was in London! I kept taking in deep breaths to enjoy the fresh air.

The walk up to Primrose Hill was not to steep but definitely got the blood pumping which felt great! Nothing like a bit of exercise to make you feel alive.

The climb is worth it for the stunning view of London! You can see all the main sights of London include the Gherkin, The Walkie-Talkie, The Shard, Canary Wharf, St Pauls Cathedral, BT Tower and the London Eye. See if you can spot them in my photos below.

Regents Park

Just the other side of Primrose Hill is Regent Parks surrounded by nature, water features and beautiful buildings. Including a bandstand which people were practising boxing on today but apparently, they do live music which I would love to see sometime. The park was filled with families having picnics, people running and dog walkers. It was lovely to experience a slower pace of London. I left feeling so calm and relaxed!

This whole day has allowed me to clear my head, take life at a slower pace and refresh ready for my weekend ahead.

What have you done this Saturday?
