Camden Lock and Primrose Hill

Todays outing was based on a recommendation from our friend Sarah.
We started by catching a tube to Camden and had a wander around the lock and the market. It was a popular choice and the place was completely packed.
We managed to find a seat and bought some tasty Indian chicken wraps for an outdoor lunch.
Afterwards we walked to Primrose Hill and up to the top of it for some great views over the city of London. I think Kate Moss and Sienna Miller live locally, and it was very fancy and trendy,  but there was no sign of either of them today. Also, I am not sure if I would recognise Sienna anyway.
Finally, we walked through Regents Park and on to Baker Street where we tried to find Sherlock Holmes' house. We couldn't remember which number he was supposed to have lived in, so we started at number 175  and walked all the way down to number 1. There was no sign of anything, so we walked all the way back and then up to number 221B where there was a blue plaque on the wall.
There was also a museum with a huge queue outside, which was a bit of a giveaway.
Successful day, thanks Sarah!
