Camden: The Roots of Punk, Britpop & Amy Winehouse

Camden: The Roots of Punk, Britpop & Amy Winehouse


Camden, London. Birthplace of Britpop. But not only Blur, Pulp, and Oasis all have roots in Camden. Also acts such as Madness, Blondie, Amy Winehouse, Elvis Costello, VanMorrison, and The Ramones are rooted here. Camden is also where the Punk movement started and where superstar Prince once owned a boutique in the 1990s.

Still today, this vibrant district boasts with independent record stores and unique live music venues. And lots of legendary music history stories.

Discover the market with its stalls full of vintage clothing, lovely antiques, tiny cafés, and numerous more cool shops. Stroll along Regent's Canal, enjoy a drink on a rooftop terrace, or a snack from one of the colourful dining booths selling food from all over the world. Shop your new favourite vinyl and explore the story behind the life of legendary singer Amy Winehouse.

For a deeper look into the history of the Punk movement in London and Camden, watch London's burning, a German documentary with Die Toten Hosen lead singer Campino.

Always a great choice for a guided tour to learn about the local music history is joining the guys from London Rock Tours or Swinging 60s. They will take you to the most important spots beyond the obvious ones and tell you legendary stories from the past.

We recommend doing this subTOUR in the afternoon as some of the recommended spots such as bars are opening after noon.
