Camden Town
 (голосов: 0)
Camden TownCamden Town. This area of North West London was built c.1791, and was once a manor belonging to St Paul's Cathedral. The manor was obtained, by marriage, in 1795 by Charles Pratt, Earl of Camden, of Camden Place in Kent, and is so named. The Earl allowed his land to be leased for building houses, so in the course of time Camden Town came into use.

Prior to the station's opening, the name of CAMDEN ROAD was considered, but it opened as CAMDEN TOWN on 22 June 1907.
