The London borough of Camden is famed for its series of markets and indie music venues. Camden was the stomping grounds of the late Amy Winehouse, who frequented the Hawley Arms pub and lived around the corner. Vintage, punk, ethnic, hippie, goth are some of the types of clothing that people come to Camden to buy.
Regent's Canal runs through Camden; until the 1950s, horses pulled barges along the canal. Camden Lock is a local landmark. The Roundhouse in Chalk Farm is a well-known cultural venue for music and varied performances. In the early 1900s, the Camden Town Group of painters focused on scenes of urban life and social realism; the most famous of this group is Walter Sickert, an acknowledged influence on Lucian Freud and Francis Bacon among others.
