Transforming the disused railway between Camden Town and King’s Cross into a new green artery for London.

Explore the route

The Camden Highline is 1.2km long has four proposed entrance/exits and would link Camden Town to King’s Cross by a 10-minute walk.



Our mission is to transform the disused railway into a sustainable green space and transport link that is open for and used by everyone.

We’re improving rather than replacing. 

Where others may see dead space, we see limitless potential.

Rather than tearing down a structure to rebuild something completely new, we’re taking an existing space and reimagining what it means for Camden.

The project that’s taking a green space to the next level.

A new green artery for London.

"Regenerating this disused industrial thoroughfare will bring the communities of Holborn and St Pancras closer together, not to mention some much needed green space and fresh air. This is a fantastic vision, and I look forward to seeing it become a reality."

— Keir Starmer, MP for Holborn & St Pancras


Education Programme

We want the Highline to become a beacon for what positive and sustainable development of the city can look like, for others to be inspired from, learn from and benefit from.

We’re working with STEAM schools, community groups and professionals across Camden to give Camden’s Young People the skills and opportunities to play a full part in the borough’s thriving creative, digital and scientific economy in the future.

If you’re a school, community group, funder, or built environment professional and interested in partner opportunities please get in touch.


Pocket Park

We have been awarded funding from MHCLG to make improvements to Camden Gardens park, which is located beneath the western end of the Highline route.

Our plans include new planters, seating and wayfinding for the public to enjoy, and will support our walking tours, education and volunteering activities in the park.


“When I look up and see this structure, I see the bones of a great new space.”

— John Alschuler, Emeritus Chair, New York High Line
