This is a good and short route. Easy to follow, and mostly on residential streets, with plenty of shops all around. The stretch on the canal is the loveliest, and although I think I would prefer Kilcam 2, this one is also perfectly good.

I walked this route from Camden to Kilburn. I've also walked Kilcam two, but it was a while ago. I'd say both routes are perfectly good. I really loved the stretch along the canal in Regent's Park, and I really love St. John's Wood high street area. The rest of the route is extremely pleasant and easy, albeit slightly uninteresting, residential street walking to Kilburn. No complaints whatsoever. A lovely route I'd definitely recommend.

(Bonus points for passing the Dublin Castle, a site with critical importance in the history of music!).

I walked from Camden to Kilburn. In general an easy-to-follow route, although it is worth keeping count of bridges on the canal! I personally would probably use Kilcam 2 in future, but only because I don't want to repeat my own navigational error - this route is generally pleasant and safe.
