A Street Art Guide To Camden Town

The walk should take you 2-3 hours depending on how long yo stop to admire and photograph the fantastic street art you are sure to see  Enjoy the fabulous result of all the hard work from “The Real Art of Street Art” who are responsible for organizing the vast majority of work that you will currently see in Camden.

1. Start at Mornington Crescent Underground Station and exit out onto Camden High Street heading towards Camden Town. Take the left hand side of the road and walk until you reach The Beatrice pub on Camden High Street. Here you will be greeted by this subtle but smirking face at the entrance to an alley way courtesy of French artist Gregos. This is your first stop for street art. There are currently some ten pieces to be seen in this alley including works from Gregos, Senor X, Alaniz, Vanesa Longchamp, & Trust Icon.

5. From here continue along Camden High Street as it becomes Chalk Farm Road. Here you have two choices, the first being to stop inside Stables Market and the second being not to. There is nearly always a little something to be spotted somewhere in terms of street art, but for how long it lasts is a differant story. However this is probably only worth doing during the week, of a weekend the Stables is so busy, it will take you a long time to navigate that place, for comparatively little art work, most of the time. At current this piece by Nando Mambo can be seen. If you don’t go via the Stables market just carry on up the left hand side of Chalk Farm Road towards Chalk Farm Underground Station.

6. Just before you reach the Chalk Farm Underground Station on the left you will come to Regents Park Road where one of the best pieces of street art in Camden is to be spotted. It’s by Kobra and is certainly worth the extra 10 or so minutes this piece adds to the walk.
