Camden Town – Saturday 26th May 2018

A weekend in London is always a treat, especially when the sun is shining!  We decided to explore a couple of areas that we hadn’t been to before, so we hopped on a bus and made Camden our first stop.  What a wonderful, bustling area – we particularly loved the Lock and market areas.  We stopped for a coffee at Pret A Manger on arrival and happily it was situated right opposite Waterstones!

The building  was originally a furniture store called Bowmans owned by two bothers and built in 1864 – when the building burned down in the 1890s it was rebuilt as a fantastic red-bricked building with mosaics above the windows that still survive.
