Camden Town
SIn 1791 Lord Camden granted leases for building 1,400 houses in pasture and timber land north of Royal College Street and along with the opening of Regents Canal and the subsequent shunting of coal barges down it London's expanding community and industry started up Camden Town. It was neither particularly rich nor particularly poor. In the earlier part of this century it became home for many immigrants, primarily from Ireland and Greek Cyprus.

In the last two decades it has become a trendy nightspot with many winebars, restaurants, night clubs and dance venues, an alternative night spot to the west end. Camden market is very popular and adjacent to it are many unusual shops
