London does not offer himself to tourists, at once, as Paris does.
You have to "know" the places, the entrances, the time of the day even.
When to go to the Borough market, to Brick Lane or to Camden. And when you know a bit, then, suddenly you discover even there new facets.
Chalk Farm begins after you cross the Canal Great Union. And almost hidden on left side, coming from Camden, right when you arrive from Chalk Farm underground, is the Stables.
All dedicated to horse and all around horses, no more horses there other then in statue form.
A mix of market, coffee places, colourful mix and match. I discovered it last year when Logan held his "impro" class there in one of the upstairs rooms of one of the staircases.
I become fascinated by Camden's diversity and life and also by the Stables, more discrete.
Each part of London has its own charm and atmosphere. Takes probably a life time to discover and curiosity and time. And decision to mingle with all kind of people, not remaining in your own circle only.
