Way up on Finchley Road, Camden Arts Centre has been quietly ploughing its own artistic furrow since 1965 (it was Hampstead Central Library before that). It used to provide arts and crafts classes to the local community; now it’s north London’s go-to for contemporary art by the likes of Haroon Mirza, Eva Hesse and Doris Salcedo. Camden also boasts a great bookshop, a lovely garden and an ace café.

Such a nice place to volunteer. Very welcoming atmosphere and unusual exhibitions

One of the best renovations jobs in north London, this former library is one of the best places to see art. And once you’ve enjoyed the impressive installations of emerging and international artists you can grab a cuppa in the glass fronted café and while away the rest of your afternoon in the picturesque gardens. I mean what more do you want form an art gallery that has it all?


The fact that it is open until 9pm is a realy plus for people who work normal day hours or students at uni/college all day. It means we can actually get somewhere in the week and see contemporary art at a great venue.
