Full description
Travel from picturesque Little Venice to vibrant Camden Town along the Regent's Canal. This waterway is a leisurely corridor through London, navigated by leisure boats and lined with quirky houseboats. You'll pass by Regent’s Park, the grounds of London Zoo and through the echoey depths of the 248 meter Maida Hill tunnel. Each boat has slide opening windows throughout, so everyone gets a 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. Travel past the homes of well-known musicians, actors and celebrities. You will also be able to see the expansive and landscaped back gardens of grand houses used by ambassadors and visiting international diplomats. Arrive in the heart of Camden Market, home to a vast array of world class traders and international cuisines.

Took a trip down the canal after many years. Enjoyed every minute. Clean and comfortable. Thanks to very friendly, humorous and knowledgeable Reuben who entertained us and a very smooth ride with Captain Jo. Our grandchildren, aged 8 and 3 also loved it, especially as the whole boat sang happy birthday for our granddaughter! Highly recommend.

The experience was amazing. It was my mom's first time in London so we decided to take the boat ride so we could enjoy the views but the guide was even better. He made the tour very informative and interesting and we enjoyed ourselves the whole time. Glad I could learn about the canals. Would definitely recommend it to friends and family and I will be bringing my partner along the next time. Thank you

We had a great time on the tour. One member of our party had previously been on other canal boat tours but said this was her favourite one. We have Sonny as our host, he was funny and full of lots of interesting relevant facts and made the whole trip a 10/10. I would definitely recommend this tour company to anyone looking to do the canal boat trip whilst in London!
