Camden is one of London’s hidden gems. Its borough goes North from the central areas of Covent Garden and Holborn through Kings Cross and Euston into the fashionable Camden Town area to the verdant and leafy Hampstead area.
It has many green areas for great dog walking - Regents Park, Primrose Hill, Parliament Hill and the huge Hampstead Heath to name the major ones. Being generally an affluent area, there are many restaurants and pubs that allow your dog to join you for a rest.
Camden is located on the what was the manor of Cantelowes. The manor was acquired through marriage in the 18th century by Sir Charles Pratt, a radical lawyer and politician, who later became the 1st Earl of Camden. He gave leases for fourteen hundred houses to be built on the land in 1791.
In the early 19th century, Regent’s Canal was built on the land, running through the north of Camden Town. The canal is very popular with dog walkers and cyclists. A water bus service is very popular that runs from Camden lock with a stop at London Zoo on the way to Little Venice. Until the 1950s, the canal barges were pulled by horses and you can see the deep marks etched by the towropes into the handrails. There are also the ramps on the canal bank, not for boats, but to help the horses out of the canal. Macclesfield Bridge is the site where a barge with gunpowder blew up in 1874, London’s largest non war explosion. In the early days, until the late 19th century, it was not a fashionable area.

During the last couple of decades, entertainment and artistic businesses have moved into the area. Due to the increased wealth in the area, restaurants have prospered. One of the first major musical venues was the Roundhouse, which was a locomotive train engine house constructed in 1847, that had a number of uses until it was converted into a music venue in the 1960s, with a recent relaunch in 2006.
A great place to go dog walking is Kenwood Park with its lawns that sweep down to a small lake. The views are outstanding, with stunning views across London and Hampstead Heath and London. The lake is surrounded in spring by wonderfully colourful rhododendrons and azaleas. The rest of the year you can picnic on the grass listening to the free concert rehearsals or hide away in the woods or little alcoves.
The borough as it stands today was created in 1965 by the joining of the metropolitan boroughs of Holborn, Hampstead and St Pancras. Camden has an ethnically mixed population and, whilst generally affluent, there are some poorer areas.

They include the writers Charles Dickens, John Keats and Aldous Huxley, the total cross section of political views from the politicians Benjamin Disraeli, Karl Marx, Frederick Engels and John Maynard Keynes. Also, the artist Henry Moore and a bevy of modern rock stars and actors.
