Camden Town Tube Station, Camden High Street London, United Kingdom NW1 8NH (343) 222 1234
Camden Town is a London Underground station on the Northern line. It is a major junction for the line and one of the busiest stations on the London Underground network. It is particularly busy with visitors to the Camden markets at weekends, and is exit-only at times when market-related traffic would cause dangerous overcrowding on the narrow platforms.Northbound the next stations are and, southbound and. The station is in Travelcard Zone 2.HistoryCharing Cross, Euston and Hampstead RailwayThe station began life as part of the original route of the Charing Cross, Euston and Hampstead Railway (CCE&HR) (now part of the Northern line) and opened on 22 June 1907. As the line here branched into two routes, to Hampstead and to Highgate, the design of the station was rather unusual, shaped like a V. The line to Hampstead (now the Edgware Branch) is under Chalk Farm Road; the line to Highgate (now the High Barnet branch) is under Kentish Town Road. With the narrowness of the roads above, and the necessity to keep directly beneath them to avoid having to pay compensation to landowners during construction, on both branches the northbound platform is directly above the southbound one.At the apex of the V was a junction allowing northbound trains to take either of the branches north, and likewise allow the trains south from the branches to join the single southbound track. This resulted in four connecting tunnels. When the CCE&HR and City & South London Railway (C&SLR) lines were joined together after the C&SLR became part of the Underground Group on 1 January 1913, a short extension was planned from the Euston terminus of the City & South London Railway to connect with the CCE&HR south of Camden Town station allowing services to run from both City and West End branches to and from the Hampstead and Highgate branches. City Branch services were extended to this station on 20 April 1924. This complex tunnelling work added another four tunnels that allows trains to proceed to or from either the Edgware or High Barnet Branch on to or off both the City or Charing cross branch without following conflicting paths The multiple junction tunnels are effectively located beneath Camden High Street.

Network Rail is at the heart of revitalising Britain’s railway. From Crossrail – Europe’s largest civil engineering project – to investment in world-class stations and major programmes of electrification, we're involved in some of the most ambitious and diverse ventures that this country has ever seen.
Britain’s railway has been growing for 150 years, without significant renewal. And yet it’s required to carry more freight and passengers than ever before. We anticipate up to 400 million more passenger journeys by as soon as 2020. Investment and modernisation are absolutely essential.
So we’re building the railway of the future. It’s a colossal challenge. And we’re relishing every moment. We’re driven to delight our customers and help the economy thrive.
We’ve already developed a world class reputation for taking care of our track - ours is one of the safest railways in Europe. Now, we’re on the way to becoming a world leader in asset management.
