The London Borough of Camden is in the north of the city, and covers the areas of Hampstead, Gospel Oak, Finchley, Frognal, Kentish Town, St John's Wood, Belsize Park, St Pancras, Holborn and Camden Town. It spans some of the poshest and most expensive areas of London - and some of the slummiest, (see: council estates)which may be why it still has a Labour council.
