Full description

Travel from picturesque Little Venice to vibrant Camden Market along the Regent's Canal on a relaxing sightseeing cruise. 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.

It's always amazing with a little boattrip, specially through the canal (very beautiful)! The trip was with commentary, so we had a guide onboard, however, it was very difficult to hear her, and when we could hear her, it wasn't, in our opinion, that interesting. All in all a good experience, though!

Little Venice was a nice place to visit . Loved the canal trip to Camden Town with a running commentary along the way . Saw many homes of the rich and famous I.e. Michael Flatly , Paul Wella etc. A canal boat that used to belong to Dave Steward from the Eurythmics. Cruising towards Camden lock the floating Chinese restaurant looked quite grand , and the aromas of the street food huts cooked around the lock were enticing . Thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

Nice little trip, and nice insight into some of the places and sights along the canal. Guide was lovely. Takes you to the perfect location in Camden. Easy to find the drop off and lovely little boat cafe opposite the docking point with pretty views. Pre book though as it does get filled up! Seats are quite small too which is the only downside.
