The London Borough of Camden () is a borough in Inner London and, for the purposes of the London Plan has been designated as part of 'Central London'. Camden was historically a part of Middlesex. Camden Town Hall, on Euston Road, lies 1.4 mi (2.3 km) north of Charing Cross. The borough comprises a central area stretching south of Euston Road almost all the way to the Thames at Lincoln's Inn Fields, including parts of the West End of London with its numerous theatres and cultural institutions, and a north-western part north of Euston Road stretching to Hampstead and Highgate.

Aside from numerous large Parks and open spaces in the London Borough of Camden, the population density of the district is high. Many sites commonly associated with London are in the borough, including The British Museum, The British Library, the famous views from Parliament Hill, the London Zoo, the BT Tower, The Roundhouse and Camden Market. Much of the borough is residential, and in 2019 it was estimated to have a population of 270,000.

The local authority is Camden London Borough Council.
