About
Before cars and even trains, London was a canal city like many in Britain were. Then as now, one of the best things about canals is that it takes you away from the noise and chaos of the busy streets and opens up areas that you couldn’t reach otherwise. In fact you’d never even know you were in the middle of London. Canals are enjoying a huge resurgence for social and leisure activities and we will see plenty of boats, some even converted into book shops, cafes or even a barbers. Some are used as homes, moored up on the towpath whilst others chug merrily along going about their slow and peaceful business. This private 3 hour walking tour will reveal a side to London that most never get to see. Away from the hustle and bustle of the busy street, this walk combines area of almost rural beauty and tranquility, modern cafe culture and incredible areas of urban renewal in a way only London can do.

Very nice walk

Walking by the canals from Paddington - Camden is a really nice, beautiful walk. You can walk the whole way, or just parts. We enjoyed it a lot

We’re really glad you enjoyed the canals. The stretch between Little Venice and Camden is particularly beautiful in the summer.

Wonderful Canals Tour
May 2019 • Couples
We had a fantastic morning tour with our guide Stephen. He took us on an extensive walk along several canals in a quiet and crowd-free area. We couldn't believe we were in Central London. Stephen told us about the history of canals in England and other interesting stories of the history of the area. This is a fabulous way to experience a side of London that most do not see.

We're so glad that you enjoyed our Canal tour. It was really nice to welcome you back again and show you a totally different side to London which is a world away from Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. Thanks so much for spending another holiday / vacation with us. It is always a pleasure to show you around. Thanks for the great review too!
