Camden Market is the largest in London, sprawling across the streets of Camden Lock. It started out in the 70s as a small food and crafts market that only operated on Sundays and has since grown into the major, all-week, destination that it is today. You can find a range of independent sellers of designer and vintage clothing, books, art, jewellery, accessories, homeware and more at the market, and there are also plenty of spots to grab something to eat whether you’re in the mood for shawarma or fish and chips, Korean hot dogs or poke. And, of course, Camden’s home to some great pubs you can stop by after.


Until 28th May 2023

This place opened back in 1848 so it’s no wonder they call it the birthplace of British cinema. Located on Regent Street, it contains 187 seats and a pretty big foyer bar where audiences and the public can drink every evening and weekend. And these guys screen it all, from indies and studio films to adaptations and classic remakes. Expect only the best from the place that first showed moving pictures in Britain.


Housed in the world famous Olympic Recording Studio in Barnes, this two screen cinema is proper luxe. Not only does it feature high-end tech (like a premier sound system), but it’s also got reclining seats with individual tables and a private members screening club. Expect all the latest releases along with classic cinema films (and snacks).


This indie cinema was the former Salvation Army Hall but now it’s a Crouch End fave that develops new and classic works reflecting the multi-cultural nature of our city. And as you can guess from the name, it’s not only a two-screen cinema venue but a live arts space too. Its programme favours independent and international movies, while the foyer area features a bar and café serving up a good offering for snacks.


Rich Mix is an East London social enterprise and independent arts venue featuring three cinema screens, as well as an exhibition and performance space. They’re rooted in the city but champion diversity, covering pretty much every genre imaginable so expect all the mainstream classics alongside independent films too.


After closing for redevelopment way back in 2014, Riverside Studios, the former telly studio and arts space overlooking the Thames by Hammersmith Bridge, is back as a state-of-the-art film complex. There are two screens: the larger Screen One with 208 comfy seats, 4k resolution projection and Dolby 7.1 surround sound, and the smaller 48-seater Screen Two, with both open to the public every night of the week.


As well as a cafe, a bar, local food traders, a community room and a live music space, Catford Mews is also home to three cinema screens, with a total of 220 seats. The programme is varied, with a mix of blockbusters, family faves and indie releases all being screened, so there really is something for everyone.
