    Britpop Camden

    Well here we are, Camden Town. You should be standing outside Caffe 43, on Pratt Street.

    Can you smell rebellion in the air? This place certainly has an interesting history. For me, Camden is a place of transition. Just look at all the railway lines that run through here, the roads that whisk you northwards and then there's the canals. People come here, get what they want and go.

    I'm Miranda and my tour is about Britpop in the mid 90s when Camden was my home. But first, let's go back to the late 70s because I want to show you number one Carol Street. Let's head there now. Walk down this road, with Caffe 43 on your left.

    You can put your phone in your pocket and focus on your surroundings. I'll tell you where to go. All you have to do is relax and enjoy the walk. Silence between tracks is normal. If you don't hear from me, just keep walking.
