The World's End

A staple when it comes to metal music in the city, The World's End in Camden's history traces back to 1667, but in its current form? A beacon for leather jackets. With The Underworld music venue downstairs, regular guests of pop-punk, screamo, heavy metal and rock head here for a drink before descending below.

The Dingwalls

The Dingwalls in Camden is a legendary live music bar that has seen some of the worlds biggest bands play here. Foo Fighters, Ramones and Mumford and Sons have all graced the stage, here is where you will find the rising stars and bands that will be big before they hit Radio1. 

The Hobgoblin

The Hobgoblin, better known as The Devonshire Arms, is one of Camden's most alternative rock and metal pubs. With its unpretentious interiors, all covered with posters and flyers, and its eccentric staff, 'The Dev' (this is how locals and habituees call it) is the ideal place for metal-heads.
