LONDON | Camden Passage is a narrow, open-air pedestrian passage located just off Upper Street in Islington. You could easily walk directly past it while wandering along Upper Street, but those who do visit are rewarded with a variety of fantastic places to shop, eat, and drink. The area was initially no more than an alley behind several houses on Upper Street, but in the 1960s was converted into an antiques market.

While gentrification of the area and rising rents have seen many of the antiques traders leave the area, there are still several antiques shops around. In fact on market day, there can be upwards of 200 retailers showcasing their wares. Main market and trading days are Wednesdays and Saturday, but many of the shops are open on weekends.

Camden Passage isn’t just about antiques, with all kinds of shops lining the quaint cobblestone paths. Think contemporary clothing, modern designer jewellery, Japanese art prints, handmade chocolates, specialist delicatessens, a fishmonger, restaurants and cafes. If it’s jewelry you’re after, check out Esme, and for contemporary home wares visit HAYGEN. For men and women’s fashion from innovative independent London-based designers, Workshop is a must.

One of our favourite chocolatiers in the world, Paul A Young, opened his first store and chocolate workshop in Camden Passage, and we highly recommend a visit for some of the best chocolates (and the best brownie) you’ll ever try. For coffee, The CoffeWorks project is highly recommended and for a pint and proper pub meal, visit The Camden Head.

Oldroyd is one of our favourite London restaurants, and is located just around the corner from Camden Passage. If you’re cooking at home, a visit to Fishmongers Moxon’s is highly recommended – they sell some of the freshest and tastiest locally caught fish in town.

The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences.Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
