Camden Town is on the map for any tourist to London – the markets, the fashion, the food, the whole atmosphere. Just down the road is a hidden treasure, a historic part of London’s culture that’s well worth a visit.

Drummond Street is a short bus ride away, very close to Euston station, and it’s a place to visit, take some photos, grab some food, and enjoy the atmosphere.

Drummond Street is best known for its Indian and Bangladeshi restaurants: perhaps try the buffet at the famous Chutney’s or Diwana Bhel Poori House, two of the first vegetarian Indian restaurants in the UK!

After lunch, head over to Ambala which has a huge selection of luxury Asian sweets and desserts. It’s one of the most Instagrammable places too with all the colours of the sweets. They are simply delicious.
