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!

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.

Our tour guide was Felix. He was funny and a wealth of information. A really good boat trip that I would recommend.

Great for something different out of the hustle and bustle
