Camden and Islington, London
Colorful and startling

Despite the posted Conde Nast review, the Camden Market/Lock area is not just for those in their twenties and is worth a trip for anyone seeking some colorful displays, ethnic food, a wide variety of humanity, and some of the most reasonable shopping prices in London. Ignore the repetitive 'leather' and 'punk' shops lining the street on the way to the Camden Lock where the market lives. The Lock area is where it's all happening. You can just stumble around there for hours and notice something new at every turn. They're still in process of rebuilding after the fire two years ago but much progrees has been made. Definitely worth a day trip.
