The nearest station is Camden Town
tube station on the Northern line - this bring passengers
straight out onto Camden High Street - less than a five minute
walk to the main markets.
However during the day on Sundays
passengers cannot leave via Camden station as it is closed
to outgoing passengers because of congestion. You can alight
there but you have to leave via Chalk Farm station or Mornington
The best plan is to leave via Chalk
Farm Station, which is on the other side of the markets -
that way you get to see everything and avoid the crowds. There
are also some very good shops, restaurants and bars between
the markets and Chalk Farm that most visitors don't know about
and don't get to see.
It is a good idea not to arrange to
meet up with fellow visitors outside the station. The area
immediately outside the station is extremely crowded and the
station itself opens up onto two separate streets so it is
difficult to find people there. Arrange to meet in a nearby
bar or street corner. See the links below.
