Camden Town itself will never let you down with its host of entertainment and places of interest. Enjoy a music scene with venues that are the envy of the rest of London. Find a good local pub and take it all in! Mornington Crescent underground is a short walk from your flat with Euston Station a little further off with its excellent transport links.
This home is very charming and spacious with many cute design touches. It is hard not to love. It accommodated comfortably our family of four. The beds were very comfortable. There was plenty of hot water. Upstairs shower tiny bit cramped due to slanted roof. Plenty towels provided. It is easy walking to tube and stores/restaurants in High st. There is a bit of nightlife scene on High St, more suitable for groups without kids. Kitchen smallish but functional with modern appliances and sufficient dishes. Couple things to know: the upper level, including sleeping quarters is primarily covered by glass ceiling. And there's a lively pub right across the street. These can be benefits for some people. Easy communications and smooth and flexible check-in and check-out. Overall it was a nice stay. Thank you!”

“A cosy, neat and chic house, a great location with easy access to supermarkets, restaurants and attractions of London, made our stay at this property a wonderful experience. The owner is nice, considerate and easy to reach, so crucial for a rental experience. A clear very helpful handout with all the important informations and local attractions exemplifies her approach, warm, reassuring while efficient. It shall be my first choice in my next visit to London.” Chia-Hung, November 2017
The apartment is quite centrally located, and just off the high street in Camden, so the proximity to great amenities was very convenient. Also, Mornington Crescent station is nearby and makes travel within the city easy. A full kitchen, washer/drier, and two w/c made our stay very effortless. Cain H, September 2017
“Liz and Deck are tops. They were welcoming and accommodating. Thank you both!” Saad, September 2017
We arrive late evening due to flight delay. But the owner welcomed us quickly when I arrived. The house is cozy and all the facilities are equipped well. Although the hot water system met a little problem, the owner came and fixed it immediately. It is good experience overall. Mike C, June 2017
Everything is good, very comfortable place and convenient location. H.Sangh, January 2017
“This is a lovely and centrally placed flat near lively Camden. The place is neat and smartly laid out. Close to everything and a great base for exploring London. Communication was easy and efficient, and everything was just as described. Would definitely recommend!” Anne G, December 2016
A very good apartment for two couples." Alexl, December 2016
Un acogedor y muy cómodo lugar para 5 personas, cerquísima de Camden Town para salir de compras, restaurantes o fiesta. Una zona muy tranquila y fácil de conectar con autobuses, una limpieza destacable del lugar con buen sistema de calefacción e iluminación. Definitivamente si vuelvo a Londres, pasaría por acá. Mauricio, October 2016
The location of this listing was excellent. It was near to Camden Market to go over for food and entertainment yet was undisturbed by the noise and crowd at the area. It was also in close proximity to the tube and was really convenient to go anywhere in London. The agency was also very responsive and helpful. Although there was some problems during the stay, Elizabeth was able to solve it quickly and effectively. The roof on the upper floor was rather low. The bed on the lower floor was also elevated which resulted in us hitting our head against the ceiling a few times. Apart from this, the apartment is very well-equipped with everything we needed and was really cosy and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone going to London!
Its an amazing location close to tube & bus stations, shops and Camden market. The host is a very nice couple. The accommodation is at three different levels but convenient. We had a wonderful stay. Adnan, August 2016
br> Logement calme, pratique et agréable -sensation d'espace créé par les différents niveaux et la verrière. on a plus l'impression d'être dans une maison que dans un appartement. accueil chaleureux du propriétaire, contact facile et réponse très rapide aux mails. Situation convenable: à proximité des bus, métro, supermarchés et commerces, parc. idéal pour visiter Londres. je le conseille vivement! Martine Maitre, August 2016
Hello, our rental experience was good. Practical and beautiful the apartment. Great location, near the subway but far from noise. We recommend the apartment. Rita Luciani, August 2015
I thank all the Team London Agent for the courtesy and professionalism offered. Our family of two adults and three girls, has now been happy to stay at the Camden NW1 Photo Library. Place in the north, quiet, near Camden Town, immediately next to the heart of London and easily accessible via the metro station Mornington Crescent. Many supermarkets and shops are located within walking distance from the house. Much appreciated the friendliness and courtesy and we send our best regards. Best regards Family Domenico Di Fonzo, August 2015
Fun place to stay. Don't be fooled by the one bedroom part, there were 5 of us and we were really comfortable. Close to the high street and market with shops and restaurants, you have everything you need not far away from you. Great to be able to walk home after a late night out. Michael Shapiro & Friends, December 2014
We really enjoyed staying at the Photo Library . It was very well located for the children having Regents Park and the Zoo nearby! Large enough to accommodate a family and friendly hosts. Alexis, October 2014
Dear London Agent team, we would recommend the Camden Photo Library to future guests. Its location is very close to a lot of means of transport and there are a lot of choices . In the near Camden High Street one can find a complete range of supermarkets and shops of every kiind. The apartment is lovely, comfortable, very much lighted and there is enough space for a familiy. It's well equipped with kitchen utensils and bed linen. We enjoyed our stay there very much. Piero Formichi, May 2014
This flat was the perfect London base for a family of 4 including two children aged 5 and 9 (the hard metal stairs would be an issue for younger children). Despite it being one bedroom, 3 beds were available and there are two bathrooms. The way the space is utilized is genius! It's a lovely, light flat a very short walk to a Sainsburys supermarket and the Underground station. We also walked to a great playground in nearby Regent's Park. The flat is well equipped and the owner is very helpful and friendly. We hope to return. Penny from Spain, March 2014.
Fabulous place to stay in London. Not for the fussy posh hotel aficionado maybe but brilliant for me. Excellent location, very easy short walk to tube, buses and easy to reach main line stations by public transport. Plentiful cabs around. Owner has ph number of brilliant cab hire firm. Close enough to walk to Camden Lock Market if you want to but far enough not to be surrounded by the crowds. Very villagey feel with local shops, plentiful good reasonable restaurants and shopping for daily needs. Very quirky place, very Camden Town. Very me. I grew up in the area so it was an amazing walk down Memory Lane. Owner could not have been more helpful or accommodating with extra bedding etc. and fixing the one small glitch I had as soon as I told her. Sitting on that chair under the skylights reading and listening to the rain on the glass roof was an absolute delight. I'll be back next time I'm in London. Kate Cox, November 2013
Fantastic stay in London, apartment was central Camden, spacious and clean, as soon as we arrived and phoned we were met by Liz who was very friendly and helpful. Definitely value for money, only negative is that you have to book for a minimum of 5 days. Would love to stay here again but only normally visit for 2-3days each time. Julia from Eston, Cleveland, July 2013
Thank you very much for everything, the experience was great! Great apartment and location, highly recommendable. Laura, June 2013
Perfect for family with separate bedroom, living area with another loft bed and couches. Handy kitchen plus clothes washer and dryer and a second bathroom. Flat's good WiFi reaches to pub across the street, handy to hang out and relaxing. Location right on the street (former shop front) you can hear conversations of people walking by but it is a quiet side street and not a problem. Tube stop 2 blocks away plus many buses super convenient on High Street with shops near transport hubs of Euston and St Pancras. Our 7 day transport pass was a huge bargain for hopping around. Don't miss walking/jogging in Regents Park and views from Primrose Hill nearby. · By London bound from Buffalo, New York, May 2013

Cool Camden! Happening, lively and never dull.
Walk to the famous markets dotted around the area, renowned for alternative fashion, vintage clothing, crafts and esoterica; not forgetting everything Gothic. Enjoy the many music venues and a thriving music scene that is the envy of the rest of London! Innumerable eateries and street food may keep you fascinated for days. This is a great area for finding a real London pub or pop into one of the many café’s around for a nice cup of tea or specialist coffee! Camden High Street offers supermarkets, local amenities and some original and unusual shops.
There is much to enjoy around here, for example the wonderful Regents Park which is home to London Zoo and open air summer events. Check out the Park and Zoo’s own website to see the attractions that they offer and for news of new and upcoming exhibitions. Both the park and the Zoo have so much to offer besides just visiting the Reptile House or lazing on a grassy bank. The London Zoo is a modern, world-class one that inspires and impresses.
Camden Lock and Hampstead Road Lock are twin, manually operated locks on the Regent’s Canal in Camden Town. This area around the locks is fascinating with pleasant towpaths open to walkers and cyclists. A regular waterbus operates from Camden, heading west to Regent’s Park, calling at London Zoo and going on towards Little Venice. The water bus boat itself is charming and this service offers a fun little river-cruise that will delight everybody…
Not far from here you will find yourself in London's hub: the area around Regents Street, Oxford Street and Piccadilly! This is a great shopping alternative to the local markets and is quick and easy to get to. Tottenham Court Road and Leicester Square are a few stops from Camden Town tube station, or a pleasant bus ride away.
Camden’s central, convenient location allows you to whizz into the West End very easily or visit some of the popular neighbouring areas a little further north, such as Hampstead and Highgate. Each of these has it's own village charm, green open spaces and historical places of interest - Hampstead's Heath and Highgate's cemetery, to name a couple.
You could just stay local and mooch about the markets and parks or cycle lazily along the canals on a balmy Sunday afternoon. Head off into the evening to relax over a drink and some live music - this is the perfect place to do so.
Like we said, it's never dull around here, as you will quickly discover...
