Full description
Travel from picturesque Little Venice to vibrant Camden Market 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.

We booked a trip from Little Venice to Camden market as a last minute thing to do while in London, as something a bit different. We weren’t sure what to expect really but we were very pleasantly surprised. The narrow boat was comfortable and spacious and the windows are large and slide back to give fabulous views. The staff were brilliant and knowledgeable and told us all about the sights as we meandered along. It was a great way to spend an hour or so. Highly recommend this trip.

A very pleasant trip along the canal from the picturesque little Venice to Camden. It’s hard to believe that we were in London as it felt like we were on holiday. Very knowledgeable skipper who also had a great sense of humour and made the trip fun. We even sang happy birthday to other fellow day trippers. Would definitely recommend

Nice experience, Little Venice a splendid place, I recommend before leaving for the tour to eat something at the Waterside Cafè. The only advice for the guided part of the tour: increase the descriptions and the story of the places, a little too sparse. I would do it again without a doubt.
