Camden's profile

Why choose Camden?

Camden is a borough of immense contrast and diversity. The borough's 8 square miles stretch from the commercial and business centres of Tottenham Court Road, New Oxford Street, Covent Garden, Fitzrovia and Holborn in the south, to the exclusive residential districts of Hampstead and Highgate in the north.

Camden is home to the second highest number of businesses in London and the fifth highest in the UK.  

The mix of social and economic conditions in Camden is like nowhere else in the UK. Camden wards are described as metropolitan, either ‘prospering’ or ‘multi-cultural’, categories that are common in London but occur rarely elsewhere. 

Over 200,000 people work in, visit or travel through Camden every day. We benefit from strong commercial centres, the University of Central London, leading hospitals including Great Ormond Street and University College Hospital, top tourist attractions, including Camden Lock, the British Library and the British Museum and three major rail termini (Euston, St. Pancras and Kings Cross).
People want to live and work in Camden. Jobs and businesses thrive in our high quality and healthy environment. The increasing level of artistic and cultural facilities has improved the quality of life for residents, businesses and visitors. It forms a significant part of the attraction that encourages new private and public sector investment into the Borough.
Camden is home to the beautiful Regent's Park and the popular Hampstead Heath, and has recently won approximately £4.3 million of Lottery Funding to improve six of its large parks and open spaces.
