Help connect Camden Town

Many Slow Ways have several route options. Some will be better than others, or good for different reasons.

Our goal is for each Slow Way to have at least one route that is verified and surveyed. To be verified – and get its snail badge – a route needs at least three positive reviews.

Give a hike and help get a for every one of Camden Town’s Slow Ways.

Camwoo is a beautiful London Slow Way passing beside Alexandra Palace, Highgate Cemetery and right through Highgate Woods.There are refreshments en route at the beautiful Waterlow Park too. It includes quite a lot of hills but also some beautiful forest and London views. A must walk....

The stretch on the canal is the loveliest, and although I think I would prefer Kilcam 2, this one is also perfectly good....

(For example, instead of turning onto Prince of Wales road, the route could just stick to Haverstock Hill and make a straight shot for Camden Town!)....

Walk this route

A good urban route, going through as many parks as possible, without making too much of a detour. It's not the shortest route, but really quite pleasant....

Derick Rethans

Walk this route

A good urban walk avoiding busy roads and going through some parks. I did cheat and shortcutted through the park near Castlehaven, and I would probably have drawn the route through there. It's not a big enough issue to make a Hamcam three though....

Jane Taylor added Camhig two, a new walk from Camden Town to Highbury & Islington Station

Walk this route

I walked this route from Highbury and Islington to Camden Town. It's a great route, but there are a few inaccuracies in the plotting that need to be addressed. Camhig two fixes them and is totally accurate to follow....

mtormey

Walk this route

This is a good route overall, but there are two places where access to parks (St. Martin’s Gardens and Camden Square) are inaccurately drawn, leading to doubling back and diversion. I’ve made Camhig Two which corrects the access problems, and otherwise keeps the same routing, and I recommend using Camhig Two....

I liked cutting through the gardens at St Mary Magdelene, Paradise Park, Caledonian Park, and St Martin's Gardens in particular, though the connecting streets were all comfortable and interesting enough to follow....

mtormey

Walk this route

Enjoyable route which crosses this part of inner north London by linking a number of local green spaces. Easy walking, quiet roads and parks, plenty of refreshments....

Jane Taylor

The rest of the route is extremely pleasant and easy, albeit slightly uninteresting, residential street walking to Kilburn....

Walk this route

Good urban route which carefully steps it’s way in zig zags round the obvious, direct, and very busy A502. Enjoyed a drink at Camden Town and a coffee at Hampstead Heath. Good pavement and footpath surfaces throughout....

The first is avoiding Praed Street by using the quieter but parallel St Michael's Street while the second is turning left off Marylebone Road into Lisson Grove and then turning in Harewood Row....

Packed with interest historically, blue plaques for former residents (I probably should have read up beforehand!) and musically, passing a number of famous venues....

David Sanderson

Walk this route

I was already aware from the other reviews that the actual route described could not be walked but thought I'd see if the route around was obvious. Approaching from the other direction you enter a nature reserve which allows ingress but comes to a gated dead end after a minute or so of walking....

It is not always a beautiful walk but is busy and interesting enough to be worth doing, Dawdle through the parks....

I walked from Camden to Wood Green. Second generally downhill through woods and parks to Wood Green. Across a bridge to Alexandra Park Station and through a park to approach Wood Green station along quiet streets....

Then, off the canal, the route follows somewhat an unexpected series of streets in behind King’s Cross and St Pancras stations, but it worked perfectly and I had no problem following it as plotted....

If I had to pick my own route, I would have walked along the canal from the Outer Ring to Chalk Farm Road, but I don't think it is important enough to make a new route for this....

Derick Rethans

Walk this route

Roads chosen are fairly quiet and zig-zag away from the main streets as far as possible....

Generally wide streets and suitable for wheel chairs zig-zagging through the quieter streets....

I walked this route from Kilburn to Camden and found it a really good urban Slow Ways route. The navigation is straightforward (even if the zig-zags are a bit annoying because you have to stick closer to a map!) and I loved taking the little diversion to head up Primrose Hill for a view of the city. A great walk....

Walk this route

This was very easy to follow, generally pleasant and once leaving the canal, used lovely quiet streets. I especially appreciated that the underpass under the railway (just past St Pancras) was clean and well-lit - this made it feel very safe....

I personally would probably use Kilcam 2 in future, but only because I don't want to repeat my own navigational error - this route is generally pleasant and safe....

Just note that right at Paddington Station the route is drawn as cutting off buildings; you can just walk straight and turn right at the London Road intersection....

A no-nonsense all pavement direct route from Camden to Euston. Pedestrian crossings wherever needed. Stops and shops throughout its short length....

It's not got more stars because when we arrived Highgate Cemetery was closed and so the route was not 100% usable....

This was a really easy route to walk through residential streets and with the advantage of two points of interest only a short detour away - 1. Abbey Road studios and 2. Primrose Hill where you can reach a fabulous viewing point over London....

I have always enjoyed walking around this are of London, the area to the north of Kings Cross station is great for cafes restaurants and bars and more and more retail options keep moving into the area. The Regents Canal flows runs through this slow way which is a lovely piece of London to roam, you can also connect through overground to Angel and continue on the toe path all the way to Stratford or Paddington....

The Canal has a ramp for access only on the Kings Cross side, so don't fully commit to the route if you don't want to navigate 20 or so stairs....

you could also amend it slightly to avoid the busy section of Holloway Road and get more greenery: set off from H&I station via Highbury Crescent and Fieldway Crescent then rejoining the route St Mary Magdalene churchyard....
