The first impression you get when you leave Camden Tube is that the 1980s are back with the late hippies and mid punks, and then that tinge of S&M with the world of piercings blended with the new multicultural where vendors hawk their goods in multiple languages, trying to guess where you come from.

Then you enter the labyrinth of the old Horse Stables with the magnificent bronze horses and fine lacework of the saddleries that once existed there, and the magic of Camden settles in.

Just a little further inwards and the Camden Locks where the barges head down or up the country, and it is a wild mixture of every possibility for street vending.

We ended the day with Italian in Leicester Square and a show in the Duke of York Theatre called Ghost Stories, well acted, great effects, then a tube ride home on crowded trains to a quiet and leafy Bloomsbury.
