Hampstead Town is a ward in the London Borough of Camden, in the United Kingdom. It covers most of Hampstead Village, the western half of Hampstead Heath, North End, the Vale of Heath, and part of Belsize Park. The more residential Frognal and Fitzjohns covers much of the rest of Hampstead.

The ward has existed since the creation of the borough on 1 April 1965 and was first used in the 1964 elections.[1] The ward was redrawn in May 1978[2] and May 2002.[3] The ward will undergo boundary changes for the 2022 election. Some of its area will be transferred to the Belsize and Gospel Oak wards, and the number of councillors it elects will be reduced from three to two.[4][5]

The population of this ward at the 2011 Census was 11,270.[6]

Its notable councillors have included two leaders of the opposition, Alan Greengross (1974-1978) and Oliver Cooper (2015-),
