Accessibility

Camden Rocks Festival takes place in multiple venues along a 1 mile stretch on Camden High Street. Please be aware that all venues have varying degrees of accessibility and disabled facilities.

Travel to Camden

The nearest step free station to Camden is Camden Road Overground Station. This station is approximately 1/4 mile from the wristband exchange at The World’s End pub.

Camden Town Underground (which is the nearest station to the wristband exchange) is not step free – access to and from the platforms is via a flight of stairs and an escalator, there is no lift. Please be aware that on occasion the escalator does break down in which case the option is to climb the 100 stairs, or travel to an alternative nearby station. We would recommend checking the www.tfl.gov.uk website for live station updates on the morning of the festival if this might present an issue for you.

Chalk Farm and Mornington Crescent tube are approximately 1/2 a mile from the centre point of the festival and the wristband exchange. Each station does have a lift, however there is still a further shorter flight of steps down to platform level.

At the time of writing there were no planned closures affecting Camden Stations on the day of the festival, however we would advise checking www.tfl.gov.uk closer to the festival date for more recent updates if you plan to travel by public transport.
