I love street art.
Sometimes, it’s more interesting than museum art.
No matter what kind of art you prefer, London’s a good place to see it, don’t you think?
And if the kind of art you prefer is street art, Camden Town is better than the Tate.
I could see the colorfully painted walls out of the bus window as we passed Chalk Farm.
It seemed about the right time to hop off.
As luck would have it, we immediately stumbled upon Leybourne Road.
As the road looped around by the train tracks, I was thrilled to discover a veritable gallery of street art, tucked away on this dead end street.
On the next block, we discovered an artist at work.
And more art, on Haven Street.
“Plus de photos, chérie. J’ai trop faim!” He had been very patient with my obsessive need to document all the street art in sight. So we stopped into the Camden Lock Market for lunch. (And that’s another story. But if I lived in London, I’d go every week to try something new!)
And with our bellies full of arepas and curry and churros, we wandered through the streets, looking for more art.
We found it.
We rambled on up the road…
And just as I was about to get in trouble again for my non-stop photo ops…
We were back at Chalk Farm.
What’s your opinion of street art? Have you been to Camden Town? Which are your favorites?
