Full description
Travel between picturesque Little Venice and vibrant Camden Town in either direction 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 249 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.

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!

There is no seating while waiting. I have some mobility problems and found it quite hard standing waiting to get on. On the boat, the slow speed and gentle rocking lulled me to dose off here and there, so expect a gentle calm and relaxing ride. The skipper and crew were helpful and friendly. It wasas a good quality activity and reasonably priced.
