I cruised from Little Venice to the Camden markets. A great relaxing trip filled with different sites and London history. Why not explore the wonderful cuisine opportunities at the markets when you disembark.

First time on a narrowboat but hopefully not the last. Mike was the perfect host for our gentle 2 hour cruise from Little Venice to Camden Lock and back. Thoroughly recommended!

Organized a surprize birthday party on the boat. Would recommend no more than 8 people on board, you can bring your drinks (reasonable amount), snacks and music. Mike is a great captain, his practical advices were really helpful. Overall great experience!

Mike, our captain and host, was welcoming and friendly, and provided us some wonderful insights into the history of the canals and rivers not only of London but around Britain. Deep rope scores made by horses as they hauled along the towpath were particularly evocative....More
