Looking for a proper party? RUCKUS at the Vault Festival is one of the best in town, featuring live bands, DJs and some of London’s finest immersive talent. There’ll be games to play and stories to follow, madness and music and the sort of fun that can only happen deep, deep underground…

4. Camden Market
