Camden Town Station upgrade: Important info from TfL

Please see below update on limited services at Camden Town station:


We are advising customers who use Camden Town Underground station that vital refurbishment of the second of two escalators will begin today, Tuesday 29 May 2018. The work will ensure the continued safe operation of the station.

The escalator will be refurbished to boost safety and reliability, which is crucial to ensure the station can manage increasing customer demand as the area continues to develop and London’s population continues to grow.

Work on the escalator is scheduled to finish in late July.

While the work is carried out, there will be no entry to the station during the following times:

  • On weekdays between 16:00 and 19:00 – the station will be exit and interchange only
  • On Saturdays and Sundays between 13:00 and 17:30 – the station will be exit and interchange only
  • During Night Tube – the station will be exit and interchange only between 00:30 and 04:30
  • At all other times – access will be via the spiral staircase only (96 steps). There will be no ‘down’ escalator at the station at any time while the works are taking place

At busy times, it may take longer to exit or move around Camden Town station than usual. Northern line customers are advised to use nearby Mornington Crescent, Chalk Farm or Kentish Town stations.
