Has anyone been to the newly re-opened Camden Lock Market after it burnt down last year?

I'm not sure if some of you know but the famous Camden Lock market in London was burnt down last year and after an apparant £100 million refurbishment, it's back up and running with a new outlook.

I went there yesterday to see what it was like and was actually quite impressed with how they've created the seating area with motorbikes (as chairs) facing the canal while you eat your food and it's now a decent place to chill in the sun, when it's actually sunny. lol

They've made loads of little huts for the traders and there's loads of places to eat such as pizza, latino, chinese etc and I had some really nice fish and chips yesterday.

What does everyone else think of the place?

You're probably only saying that cos you're impressed with the motorbike seating....based on your avi anyway. :giggle:

Love Camden Market, haven't been since about January though!

Yeah why not...I think the Fish and Chips is what made it a better experience, otherwise I might not of been as impressed but I was quite surprised with how peaceful it was around there.
I remember when I went Brighton last summer and was really disappointed after trying out the fish and chippy there, you would think it would taste fresher being by the sea side. lol

cant imagine trying to hop up onto a motorbike with my cafe au leche and a chicken salad lol

Supermod

I spend loads of time in Camden but I havent recently. It would be great to see some pictures.

There is probably a reason your fish and chips tasted like it did - you had a savoloy!

:giggle: I know it sounds quite chavvy but they've done it quite nice, it's different from what you probably imagine though.

Gonna have a look to see if I can find a pic of it on google.

EDIT: I can't find one, as they haven't updated the website but I don't know if anyone else can.

Lol, I don't think they had any deals worth mentioning, otherwise I probably would of. :giggle:

Lol, will do but I don't think I'll be going there for a bit, unless I'm craving Fish and Chips again to find an excuse, although that might be hard, as I had it twice yesterday alone. :giggle:

If anyone goes there before me, can you take some pics for this thread?

£100 million? wow they havnt even done up that building properly yet, seems a lot of money for a few huts and chopped scooters........although those huge bronzes are pretty impressive.

prefer to sit down next to the canal than on the scooters tho....

same old stuff in the huts as they have scattered about the other side as well tbh
