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.

the ride was so pretty and the people working on the boat were lovely the only thing I didn't enjoy was the talking over the journey. It may have been the fact I was extremely hungover but that microphone was way too loud. I understand all of the elderly tourists might be deaf but I feel like it would have been a lot better if someone just spoke without it because we could definitely hear what she was saying the microphone just wasn't necessary. It was a lovely trip overall and definitely recommend it to my friends.

Great trip hosted by Nicky! The trip itself had beautiful scenic views brought to life by Nicky's super interesting, historical knowledge. Safety was taken seriously at all times but didn't impact on the joy of the trip. Boat left on time from Camden up to Little Venice. Great value for money, highly recommend!

Really friendly staff. Maybe more interesting facts about the area, history etc. There was some but also long pauses where I would have loved more information about the area. But it was a really good activity for all ages and we sang happy birthday to one passenger , in the tunnel which was fun!
