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.

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.

A calm and relaxing experience across the Regent canal. Perfect for little ones too, just make sure you book their ticket even though infants under 5 are free you still need to book them in! Thankfully it wasn’t busy so the man let us off! Overall a lovely boat ride, we took the boat from Camden market to Little Venice as there was much more availability going in that direction.

Gorgeous canal boat trip, especially if it's a sunny day. It was easy to find the boat moored at Camden Lock, you can't miss it. Easy to get on and off as the boat has handrails and just a few steps down to the seating area. The guide Reuben was funny and personable, and the captain (sorry I can't remember his name!) did a perfect job at driving the boat. There was a nice mix of people on the boat - couples, families with kids, small groups, all ages. I enjoyed it and didn't feel silly going on my own. Would recommend it!
