Customer Travel Tip: inform youself about the night buses routes and their stop positions before the very moment you're going to need them. looking for unknown bus stops during the day may be simple, but at night it can be uncomfortable.

Disliked: camden town relies too much on its famous name, with consequently overprice of most of the shops. i really think almost just tourists buy there.
