Full description

Travel between vibrant Camden Town and picturesque Little Venice along 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.

Really enjoyed boat trip. The narrative from the member of staff was very informative pointing out interesting features along the canal and putting humour in as well. I have walked route previously so had some prior knowledge but cruising was fantastic. The only slight negative was the chaotic queueing at start but area was crowded. Still worth 5 stars.

The water is trip to Little Venice was a lovely experience. It was a perfect gift for my little one to experience with his dad on fathers day. Father and son both enjoyed the boat ride and it was worth the 45 minute trip. Staff were very friendly and had space for strollers whilst the little one enjoyed standing/sitting and being free looking around.

Great little trip, the guide (boat person) had great knowledge of the area (we trust he told the truth lol), it was relaxing and easy to find. Would have liked some better views at times as we were swamped by old narrow boats and trees but I guess it’s how it is. Got off and found the tube fairly easy to get back to central London. Camden area busy on Saturday and full of food and stalls selling similar stuff.
