Full description

Travel between vibrant Camden Market and picturesque Little Venice along the Regent's Canal on this scenic 1-way waterbus trip. Sit back and relax as you cruise on a calm waterway through London, navigated by leisure boats and lined with quirky houseboats.

Departing from West Yard, Camden Market, pass by Regent’s Park, the grounds of London Zoo, and through the echoey depths of the 249-meter Maida Hill Tunnel. Take advantage of slide-opening windows throughout the boat, so everyone gets a picture-perfect view.

As you pass through London Zoo, keep an eye out for warthogs and African hunting dogs, which can often be seen as the boat passes their canal-side enclosure.

Cruise past the homes of well-known musicians, actors, and celebrities. See the expansive and landscaped back gardens of grand houses used by ambassadors and visiting international diplomats.

End your boat trip in Little Venice, where you can get off and continue your adventure on your own.

Thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the continuous commentary from which I learnt a lot of history of the canals in London. I am not a person who would normally get on a moving vehicle on water, BUT I am proud to say I did on this occasion and felt mostly quite safe. Thank you

Lovely ride down the canal to little Venice , our guide was great, funny. Everyone was friendly . Went to pass the time in the late afternoon and enjoy the scenery. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars is because although relaxing , and informative along the way, it was a little boring for me. This wasn’t the fault of the guide or company,

Great starting point in bustling Camden and to end in relaxing Little Venice. Reassuring to be able to prebook at busy holiday time. Comfortable seating with leg space. Fantastically friendly and welcoming staff but commentary not perfect in sound quality and there were so many interesting points which other passengers had to keep repeating to each other meaning missed a few sentences.
