Little Venice: Regent’s Canal Waterbus Boat Trip to Camden

1. Little Venice: Regent’s Canal Waterbus Boat Trip to Camden

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.

London Zoo: Entry Ticket

2. London Zoo: Entry Ticket

Take in the zoo's biggest experience, Land of the Lions, to get closer than ever before to the mighty Asiatic lions – of which only 400 remain in the wild. Explore walkways covering the 2,500 m² Indian-themed exhibit. Exchange your voucher for a ticket at the pre-paid ticket desk and head into the zoo. Come face-to-face with one of nature's most awesome predators in Tiger Territory, learn about the natural behaviors of Sumatran tigers, and discover the conservation issues these creatures face in the wild. Then, discover the new features added in 2021. Head to Tiny Giants, a celebration of all things small but mighty and the sometimes strange but always wonderful world of invertebrates. Enjoy the unmissable, brand new coral reef tank and watch schools of fish, including clownfish and blue tangs. Next, visit Giants of the Galápagos, which opened in October 2021. Soak in the Galápagos climate and discover three Galápagos giant tortoises who can live for over a century. Imagine how the world might change in their lifetime and learn how we can protect them – and our planet – for years to come. Head down to the beach to watch the colony of Humboldt penguins dive, swim, frolic, and feed in England's largest penguin pool, complete with underwater viewing windows. Next, step Into Africa to observe the elegance and grace of the giraffes before moving on to the magnificent residents of Gorilla Kingdom.

Charming! Ang drove us expertly and Nicky gave a very interesting and engaging talk for the length of the cruise. Sorry missed the name of the barge but it was very old!

if u want to visit the the key attractions in the list it worth the cost (at least 3 per days) if u are not a real attractions visitor don't get it.

It was a nice, relatively short, authentic trip across the canal. The destination is Camden town, a touristy place as well. would recommend

The canal boat ride was really lovely. With lots of information about places of interest along the route. Friendly crew.

Great for something different out of the hustle and bustle
