Five gems in the Crown of Camden
Praised as one of the most interesting, vibrant and spiritual parts of the capital, the London Borough of Camden has many different faces. What all of them have in common is the fact that they are truly charismatic and capable of captivating the imagination of both visitors and permanent residents. From posh suburbs where property and rent rates are rather steep to bohemian quarters and hosts of alternative culture, the districts of Camden have a lot to offer to everybody. Here we are going to just point out some of the best places among those.
Camden – a place to live in
There is a certain degree of class that goes with living in one of the nice classical residential areas of London. We are talking about rows of terraced houses, tree-lined streets and the general feeling of epochs of past that is to be captured all across the place. Does it sound appealing to you? Well, then just hire a professional house removal team in Bloomsbury and get around to planning and executing your relocation to the district. The area is famous for its aristocratic character, the many literary connections that go with it, and the high concentration of various cultural and healthcare institutions that are to be found on its territory. Garden squares, such as the Bloomsbury square, built in 1660, are among the most characteristic traits of the district. Bloomsbury was mainly developed in the 18th and the 17th centuries and much of its architecture is actually from that period. A broad range of writers, from Dorothy Richardson to Charles Dickens to William Butler Yeats used to live in the area. As for the aforementioned institutions, we cannot miss to mention the likes of:
- The British Museum
- The Foundling Museum
- The Dickens Museum
- The Senate House
- Birkbeck College
- The Royal Academy of Dramatic Art
- London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine
If you are looking for a nice place to live that is not as busy and crowded by tourists, Camden has a lot to offer in that direction too. Take for example, the comfortable suburban area that goes by the name of Frognal NW3. Even though its history can be traced back to at least the 15th century, the main claim to fame that the area has is the fact that General Charles de Gaulle used to live here during some of the War years – between 1942 and 1944. There are very few other special things to be said about Frognal and that’s the beauty of it.
The list however goes on…
There has been reported an increase in the number of local house removals in Hampstead that have been carried out recently. There is little wonder to that fact – after all, we are talking about one of the most famous and comfortable parts of Camden. The name refers to the territory of the historic Hampstead Village – most of it now a conservation area located just 4 miles to the northwest of Charing Cross. The area benefits from the proximity of Hampstead Heath as well. This hilly, rather expansive open green space actually contains one of the highest points in London. The nearby Primrose Hill NW1 is actually a very fine residential area that has been built around such a hill and boasts a marvellous vista to Central London, Hampstead itself and other parts of the capital. Major attractions such as the London Zoo and Regent’s Park are easy to access from Primrose Hill.
One last for the road
The last magnificent area in the London Borough of Camden that we would like to bring your attention to is of course St Pancras WC1, NW1, which is one of the most central and exclusive areas in London. The defining point of the area is the eponymous railway station, which happens to be one of the most iconic transport hubs of the capital. St Pancras is not as much a residential area as it is a shopping district and home to a number of upmarket venues that attract visitors from all over the world.
