Camden – the London Borough of Bohemia

The Borough of Camden has got to be among London’s most colourful. Living on the edge, just north of the Borough of Westminster it’s mere minutes by tube from the shopping, glamour and glitz of the West End (parts of which are included in the borough). In contrast, Camden Town itself is, as it always has been, permeated by a distinctly ‘alternative’ vibe with its world famous markets and music and arts venues.

    Camden’s Global Village

    Classified as part of ‘InnerLondon’ – and officially designated as part of ‘Central London’ by the 2004 London Plan – it’s every bit as hyperactive and cosmopolitan as that suggests. But although the borough extends south well into the heart of the West End, it has far more open green spaces than you’d expect from an ‘inner city’ area. For a start, it shares the vast Regent’s Park, home of London Zoo with Westminster, includes the leafy squares of Bloomsbury and boasts spectacular views from Primrose Hill, while to the North there’s demurely upmarket Hampstead with the fabulously rambling Hampstead Heath and its swimming ponds.

    Education in Camden

    Camden is a fairly diverse borough in terms of ethnic background and income and its education provision tends to reflect that with over 40 state primary schools and 10 secondary schools along with 17 independent primary and preparatory schools and 11 senior and all-through ones. Add to that one independent and 9 state special alternative schools of various kinds and you have a broad spectrum of possibilities for teaching professionals – especially when you factor in the borough’s undergraduate and post-graduate settings, which are particularly impressive, including rightly revered institutions such as Central Saint Martins and The Slade schools of art, the London School of Economics, The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts, University College London and the Royal Veterinary College to name but a few.

    Rich pickings for culture vultures

    Choose to live and work here and you won’t be short of stuff to do! There’s a rich seam of subculture to be mined in the markets around Camden Lock – not just alternative and rock ’n’ roll orientated fashions but alsothe ultimate in shabby chic reclaimed clothes and furniture. If haute couture shopping’s more your thing, it’s close at hand in Hampstead and the West End, while for music and the arts generally this borough’s hard to beat, boasting legendary venues such as Barfly, Koko, The Roundhouse, the Electric Ballroom and Etcetera Theatre among countless others. You’ll also be adding your name to a stellar list of prominent residents that includes John Keats, Charles Dickens, George Bernard Shaw, Madness, Dua Lipa and Amy Winehouse.
