Commercial Property Area Guide: Camden Town

Commercial properties to rent in Camden Town

Known for its buzzing markets, colourful streets and live music venues, Camden Town is a vibrant place to base a business. Regent’s Canal and railways transformed Camden from a sleepy residential area in the 18th century into a thriving industrial hub. The canal remains a hive of activity today with the famous Camden Lock acting as a social meeting point where people eat, drink and shop.

Camden Town has long since been associated with alternative culture, which is something the local venues celebrate with quirky settings and offerings. As a result, the area attracts creative and arts businesses that are keen to push the boundaries. However, Camden is also in a prime location for businesses in media and technology industries thanks to its excellent connections. It is close to King’s Cross and Islington, offering fast links across the capital and beyond.

Nestled between Primrose Hill, Chalk Farm, Regent’s Park and Kentish Town, Camden town certainly has a refined side. The property scene is considered upmarket, and you’ll find offices in stunning Georgian and Victorian buildings as well as popular developments in former industrial buildings. There’s also a thriving retail side to Camden Town, thanks to the enduring attraction of its markets, and properties in this category are highly sought after.

Interesting facts about Camden Town

Camden Market is one of the capital’s favourite attractions, with around 100,000 people visiting each weekend. This high volume of footfall helps Camden Town generate around £1.2 billion a year from consumer spending.

The very first food stall in Camden Market was opened by former Olympic sprinter June Foulds in 1974. After winning bronze and silver medals at the highest level of competition, June probably fancied a gentler, yet no less busy, pace of life.

The world-famous Camden Roundhouse wasn’t always a music venue. It began its life as a housing for a turntable that helped spin engines around at the end of the line so they could return from the direction they had come from.

The area has a long history of famously creative residents, with such literary heavy hitters as George Orwell, Mary Shelley and Charles Dickens calling Camden Town home.
