Easter, perhaps the only time of year when we are actually look forward to eating eggs for four days straight, is finally around the corner!
Everybody’s schedule will be filled with egg decorating, egg hunting and of course the all important task of egg eating, particularly those of the chocolate variety. We simply couldn’t imagine an Easter celebration without these traditions.
On Sunday, more than one hundred thousand people will be gathering around the River Thames in West London to watch the iconic rowing race between the Oxford University Boat Club and the Cambridge University Boat Club.
The Boat Race is probably one of the most iconic British races and has been held each year since 1856.
The British are known for their love of tea, but believe it or not Britain was actually a latecomer to the tea trade and was involved in numerous cases of restrictions and smuggling.
Allow us to take you through a brief history of British tea…
Camden Town is one of the most visited places in world. It's a place that stands out for its individuality, home to the misfits, artists, musicians, tattoo artists and burlesque dancers. In fact, Camden is home to anyone who wants to call it so.
But did you ever wonder how a place becomes so emblematic? Let’s go back to the origin of Camden Town.
The only day of the year when food is not only plates but also falling from the ceiling is upon us. Yes, you’ve guessed it, it’s finally Pancake Day.
By now your cupboards should be filled up with lemon and sugar (and perhaps a cheeky bit of chocolate sauce) because it is expected of us to eat our weight in pancakes, and we shall not disappoint.
As great as this day might be, did you ever wonder where it came from?
Allow us to take you back to the origins of Pancake Day and introduce you to the proper way of celebrating it.
If you are looking for a rustic and heart-warming restaurant in Camden, then look no further, the Lazy Hunter is the place for you. It is a real respite in the middle of the city, the perfect weekend escape without having to take a long and tiring road trip.
It’s picturesque decor with its open plan kitchen, wooden tables and wild animal drawings on the walls will make you want to hang around all day long.
As you might know by now, cycling has always been a passion of ours. We even have a little Camden Watch Co team over in Switzerland. So after collaborating with Kitty Pemberton-Platt on our special cycling edition watch we took our involvement with a step further by sponsoring the all new grassroots racing team SCARPA in collaboration with Rapha Custom (which launches today).
Supporting the underdog has always spoken to us here at Camden Watch Co., even more so when the people behind it are as passionate about what they do as the SCARPA ladies are...
If you’ve walked around King’s Cross recently, then you’ve probably noticed that it is not only the home of big creative hubs such as Google, CSM and Youtube (to name a few), but also developing as a destination full of independent boutiques and high street shops alike, all the while keeping its beautiful Victorian architecture.
It is a place that embodies so much of what we love about London; heritage and modernity side by side.
Can you believe that it’s already that time of the year? When the city is all lit up with fairy lights, the air filled with the smell of mince pies and drinking mulled wine on the roof of a car park is no only acceptable but cool.
Allow us to take you back in time, to the birth of some of our best loved Christmas traditions.
Every month we go on the hunt to find the best places to eat in Camden and share with you our often delicious foodventures.
This time we had lunch at Caravan King’s Cross, a little - and succulent - piece of New Zealand in the heart of London.
