Camden Lock Market
Even the ravaging flames of the Camden blaze couldn't put the Lock Market out of action. Ever since turning from a timber yard to a market in the early 70s, it's been a magnet for the bizarre, the curious and the heavily-pierced. It's better for doing and seeing, rather than buying – unless, of course, you've always wanted a t-shirt that says 'Dolphins are Gay Sharks,' or a lampshade made from circuit boards. Have an on-the-spot Shiatsu massage, a palm reading, a new piercing or squeeze yourself into a tiny corset and S&M boots – just for kicks.
