Camden Town was very rural until the nineteenth century, when the Regents Canal was created and the area started to thrive with small industries, traders and coal wharves. It was the vision of Charles Pratt, who was the first Earl of Camden to plan a residential quarter, which became a catalyst for further urbanisation. This also grew when the railway opened in 1850.

By Victorian times, Camden Town had become tarnished and inhabited by the very poor or socially disadvantaged. However a group of English Post-impressionist artists, including Walter Sickert, who lived in the district, founded the Camden Town Group which attracted artists to the area. Amongst other famous artists and celebrities to have been resident in Camden include: Charles Dickens, playwright Alan Bennett, Dylan Thomas and more recently Chris Martin of Coldplay and Amy Winehouse.
