Regent’s Canal

Then, let’s talk about the Regent’s Canal ! It runs through central London in its northern part. The Regent’s Canal begins in Little Venice, passes under the tunnels of Maida Hill and Lisson Grove. It crosses the northern part of Regent’s Park, and the London Zoo to cross Camden Town and then King’s Cross. It then continues eastward to Victoria Park where it joins the Hertford Union Canal, then heads south and ends up meeting the Thames.
The Regent’s Canal is one of London’s best-kept secrets – it is considered as a peaceful haven as it is often hidden by the surrounding buildings… Boat tours are regularly available, between Camden Town and Little Venice by the waterbus.
