But admission to this stunning building is free, so we jump the school groups queued at security and head around to the side entrance in Exhibition Street.

The tacky flea market stalls near the station give way to Camden Lock Market proper across the canal. It is housed in a former horse market, so is a tangle of cobbled lanes, barns and horse stalls. There is a huge assortment of original goodies on offer as well as an international array of food stalls for lunch.

George Michael is playing at the Earl's Court Exhibition Centre around the corner tonight. I am seriously tempted to go just to do a London show, but alas, it is sold out. So it's a Lebanese feast nearby, a packing of the bags and the setting of the alarm for 7.30am...
