Camden Will Get A New Shopping And Restaurant Complex Next Summer

Hawley Wharf

Hawley Wharf will land in Camden next year.

Anything Kings Cross can do, Camden can do too. That seems to be the logic behind this move, because barely two weeks after the opening of Coal Drops Yard comes the news that Camden is launching its own shopping and dining destination. Hawley Wharf, as the development is known, is set to land in NW1 this summer – literally right next door to Secret London HQ. Certainly explains all the banging and drilling, I suppose…

Despite Camden being pretty rammed already, the folks behind Hawley Wharf are electing to cram a lot of stuff into the new development. When finished, the development will encompass a massive 580,000 square feet of space overlooking Hawley Lock (on the former site of Camden Lock Village). Hawley Wharf will somehow find space for 195 apartments, a new co-working space, and a frankly staggering 60 restaurants. Tucked between the Overground and the canal, it’s not yet clear exactly how 60 eateries will be housed here, but we’ll go along with it for now.

Hawley Wharf will also be home to a regular farmer’s market, which they claim will be the biggest in North London. The development will also include new public spaces, as well as an arthouse cinema and a new primary school. It’s probably easier to list what they’re not trying to cram in here, to be honest.

Development work is still underway (trust us, we hear it all here), and Hawley Wharf is slated to open in summer 2019. Until then, maybe check out the best restaurants in Camden, along with Camden’s best boozers. You know, just whilst you’re waiting!
