Camden High Street is a short stretch of road (less than 500m long, forming part of the A400) in Camden Town, in north-northwest London. It is part of the route from central London to Hampstead. It is the local high street and features major music venues at either end (KOKO, the former Camden Palace, at the southern end and the bridge over Regent's Canal at the northern end).

It is a one-way street only allowing vehicular traffic to travel northwards (southbound traffic uses the parallel Camden Street). Travelling north, traffic emerges from Hampstead Road (A400) into the High Street at the junction with Eversholt Street, by Mornington Crescent tube station.

The northern extremity of Camden High Street lies at a bridge over Regent's Canal where the road turns Chalk Farm Road, into the southern end Kentish Town Road (where the A400 continues) and Camden Road. Camden Town tube station is on the corner between Camden High Street and Kentish Town Road.
