Camden Town lies to the north-east of Regent's -park on London clay, and is a moderately. rented neighbourhood, with, as a rule, very moderate-sized houses. Quite small houses of six, eight, and ten rooms each can here be found, and it is, relatively to its distance from Charing-cross, the cheapest neighbourhood, so far as rent is concerned, in London. NEAREST Railway Stations, Gower.street and Camden . mad ; Omnibus Routes, Hampstead-road and Albert-road.
