Chalk Farm is an area of northwest London, England. It lies directly to the north of Camden Town, and its underground station is the closest tube station to the nearby, upmarket neighbourhood of Primrose Hill. Home to a number of writers, artists and actors, Chalk Farm and Primrose Hill are popular places to celebrity spot where Jude Law, Sadie Frost and Sienna Miller are all part of the area's famous set.
Its name, deceptively rural, derives from the name of the village on its site, Chalcot. These days it absorbs the spread from Camden Town and has many lively pubs, live music venues, and restaurants. Within London it is best known as the site of Roundhouse, a former circular railway engine turntable shed which was subsequently converted for arts and performance use.
Chalk Farm contains Haverstock School Business & Enterprise College (formerly Haverstock Comprehensive School).
It also used to be the site of the Camden College of English.
For over 70 years some of Central London's busiest bus routes were operated from Chalk Farm Bus garage, which was located in Harmood Street.
