John Rogers: Camden Town Walking Tour – Pubs, Market, Venues, History


Interesting videos about London, and elsewhere, from London-based film-maker and writer John Rogers, author of This Other London – adventures in the overlooked city

His blog The Lost Byway

This was rather nostalgic as I lived in Belzize Park and knew this area quite well, including a number of the pubs mentioned

Camden Town Walking Tour – Pubs, Market, Venues, History in 4K. Our walking tour of Camden Town starts on Haverstock Hill at the Sir Richard Steele pub then passes Chalk Farm Station. From here we see The Enterprise pub and the Camden Roundhouse, scene of the Congress of the Dialectics of Liberation in 1967. After a detour down Belmont Street we visit The Lock Tavern, and The Monarch/Barfly before heading into the recently refurbished Stables Market. From here we pass into Camden Lock Market and visit Black Gull bookshop where I buy a couple of Terry Pratchett books. We cross the Regent’s Canal and look back to Dingwalls before heading down Camden High Street past the Electric Ballroom and the Good Mixer in Inverness Street. Over the road from Camden Station we have The World’s End, formerly the Mother Redcap and the Underworld. Further along the High Street we pop in on The Camden’s Head home of the brilliant Camden Comedy Club before making our way to Camden Palace, now Koko. We double back along the High Street to have a look at the Jewish Museum and then pay homage to Madness at The Dublin Castle. Our Camden Town walking tour concludes at Cecil Sharp House.
