Camden Town Hall is moving

Our 80-year-old town hall is temporarily closing for three years from August as part of a refurbishment project to modernise the building.

From this summer, all services at the town hall will move whilst essential refurbishment work takes place. The major refit will improve the building's sustainability and environmental performance, reduce long-term running costs and transform the way some of the space is used. During the works, services will move to the below locations:

From Monday 13 August: Crowndale Centre, 218 Eversholt Street, NW1 1BD

•  birth registrations

•  death registrations

•  duplicate certificate applications

•  citizenship ceremonies.

Electoral and committee services, along with the Council Chamber and committee rooms for all council meetings, the Mayor's Parlour and member support, will also move to the Crowndale Centre from Monday 20 August onwards.

From Monday 23 July: Tavistock House, Tavistock Square, WC1H 9JB

•  nationality checking service

•  settlement checking service

•  nationality document return service

•  european passport return service

•  taking notices for marriages and civil partnerships.

Bookings for our new ceremony suite in Tavistock House are now being taken for weddings and civil ceremonies held from Monday 30 July onwards.


Next steps

After the closure of the town hall, a planning application will be submitted in October 2018 and following that, subject to approval, work will begin. The town hall refurbishment is scheduled to be completed by autumn 2021.

Please note public access to Camden Town Hall will end on 17 August 2018. There will be no entry to the town hall whilst the works takes place.
