Camden High Street is a one-way street in north London on the route from central London to Hampstead. Here is Camden Town Junction, also known as Britannia Junction, in the middle of Camden Town, where six roads converge.
The World’s End is a pub and music venue on the corner of Camden Road and Camden High Street. There has been a pub or tavern on the site since at least the late 17th century. The pub was previously known variously as the Mother Red Cap, the Mother Black Cap and also the Black Cap, and it was renamed the World’s End in 1985. This may be just as well: the black cap was worn by a judge when sentencing a defendant to death. There are various horrible local legends about this pub, and of course, it is supposed to be haunted.
