Camden Road was originally built as a direct access route to Holloway. Its begins at Camden Town Tube station at Five Cross Junction, and leads all the way up to the thriving Holloway Road area. It is part of the A503 which continues east as Tollington road. Camden Road has a mixture of buildings and architecture, ranging from commercial units to early Victorian villas and brand new developments. Sainsbury’s holds a prominent position at the base of Camden Road, which used to be the historic and long-running Aerated Bread Company (ABC) bakery which closed in the 1980s. As one of the largest grocery stores in the area, people come from far and wide to get their weekly shopping there.
Opposite Sainbury’s there are a range of local cafes and shops with residential converted flats above and below. As you travel along the road going north east you’ll pass the British Transport Police station. Moving further up the hill, you’ll pass Highstone Mansions, which is a 1930’s private block, housing 64 flats with commercial units below. It overlooks the exclusive Regent’s Canal side development, and offers stunning views over the Canal. Fans of outdoor sport will be attracted by the astro-turf pitches and the concrete skate park which provides fun and entertainment for all generations. Continuing to the top of the hill, you will pass a mixture of stunning Villa style properties, elegant Victorian town houses with sizeable gardens, purpose built local authority housing and a few contemporary buildings.
Camden Road is extremely well connected for transport links. Busses such as the 29, 253 and the N279 will whisk you into central London or out towards Holloway. The Overground station at Camden Road provides access to a number of locations across London that are out of reach via the Tube. Camden Town Tube station is serviced by the Northern Line and is in Zone 2; trains from here will take you into central London and all the way to Morden in south London or Edgware in the north of the City. Parking is harder on the main road but after 7pm the red routes are non-enforceable.
Young professionals, students, and sharers are the main occupiers in this area. As the road is busy, it tends not to attract as many families and many of the period properties have been converted in to flats. With local amenities on the doorstep and excellent transport links in and out of London, it is easy to see why this is such a popular location.
