Swiss Cottage is a ward in the London Borough of Camden, in the United Kingdom. The ward was created for the May 1978 election[1] and was redrawn in May 2002.[2] The population of this ward at the 2011 Census was 12,900.[3]

Swiss Cottage ward is a long, thin ward centred on the intersection between Avenue Road and Finchley Road at Swiss Cottage. To the west of the intersection, it includes South Hampstead. To the south-east, it includes the northern part of St John's Wood and western part of Primrose Hill.

Under its previous form, Swiss Cottage covered just South Hampstead, while the former Adelaide ward covered the parts of the ward the east of Finchley Road (including Ye Olde Swiss Cottage itself).

The ward will be abolished for the 2022 election. Its area will be divided between the newly created Primrose Hill and South Hampstead wards.[4][5]
