Camden Town Hall has reopened following a 4-year refurbishment.
We’ve done all we can to make sure the building is as accessible, inclusive and sustainable as possible, and to protect the building’s history.
We'll also get our investment back and create more income by renting out space in the building.
Relocation of services
These services have moved back to Camden Town Hall:
- electoral services
- birth registrations
- death registrations
- duplicate certificate applications
- name change via deed poll service
- taking notice for marriages and civil partnerships
- weddings and civil partnership ceremonies
- citizenship ceremonies
Accessibility and inclusivity
We’ve improved access to the town hall with:
- modern hearing induction loops
- new and upgraded lifts
- accessible toilets on all floors and a Changing Places toilet (a larger accessible toilet with additional equipment) on ground floor
- baby-changing facilities
- Blue Badge parking spaces for disabled visitors
- new webcasting and audio-visual technology for council meetings
We have worked with local disability groups throughout the refurbishment process to improve access.
The town hall is now one of the most sustainable historic buildings in Camden with:
- heating and cooling powered by 100% renewable sources and improved insulation – the building uses 60% less energy than before the refurbishment
- more bicycle parking spaces
- only Blue Badge holders will be able to park their car
- single-use plastic banned
- biodiversity features on the roof to support local bat and bird populations
Weddings and civil partnership ceremonies
There are three newly refurbished ceremony suites at Camden Town Hall.

Community room: Claudia Jones Room
We’ve invested in a large community room for residents, voluntary and community groups and schools to book, either at low cost or we may be able to waive the room hire fee. The room is named after civil rights and anti-racism activist Claudia Jones, who organised the first Notting Hill Carnival (originally the Caribbean Carnival) at the town hall in 1959.
