Establishment neighborhood
Chalk Farm Rd., Camden
From the Reverb festival that brings modern excitement to classical music, to hosting the hip Camden Crawl festival every May, Camden's Roundhouse is a hub for London's music scene, with young people at its heart. Acting as a community center of sorts, the goal of here is to inspire young adults to become interested and trained in the arts. Check their website for listings and details of their current events: expect rock, jazz, classical, folk and everything in between.
High Sports
Swiss Cottage Sports Centre, Adelaide Rd., Camden
Rock climbing is a seriously intimidating sport for beginners, but High Sports team eases nerves with informal classes and supervised sessions targeted for newcomers. With gym locations all over London, they are an especially great resource for kids, who can learn the basics (and safety) in their Junior clubs. For those who are less committed, they also do birthday parties and one-time drop in classes, which do a fantastic job of occupying kids on rainy days.
57 Jamestown Rd., Camden
We were sad to see Triyoga's beautiful, Primrose Hill location go but are more than satisfied with its new airy, Camden replacement. Beyond the well-known yoga and Pilates classes—by far, some of the best the city has to offer—it's also worth checking out the infrared sauna sessions, craniosacral massage, intuitive readings, and nutritional, EFT, and CBT therapy (depending on what you're after). Additional services are offered at Triyoga locations in Covent Garden, Soho, and Chelsea.
