Canal and River Cruises Ltd operate a 12 seater narrowboat on London's canals, based in the lovely laid-back area of Maida Vale know as Little Venice. We offer one hour sightseeing tours through to whole day tours for private parties of all sizes between 2 and 12 guests. A canal cruise is ideal for family celebrations, hen parties or just a day out with your friends. Our most popular cruise is 2 hours, slowly following the Regents Canal through Maida Vale and Regents Park and London Zoo before turning around at Camden Lock Market. We also specialise in custom made private cruises from two hours to a whole day with an itinerary built just for you! Ask us for advice on where to go before and after your cruise to make a perfect day! We occasionally offer public boat trips too, aiming to take you to places not often reached by public boats, so do look at our website to check for the latest news, and if there's nothing available why not ask us! Arrive as a customer and leave as a friend. We are here to make your day special!

A 3 hour gentle and relaxed cruise along the canal through Regents Park through to Camden Lock with the family. What a lovely way to enjoy London from a different angle. Mike is the perfect host - providing an unobtrusive commentary along the way.

Hi there, how many people does the table at the front of the Lady A comfortably seat? We have a group of 9 people. Also how would a 2 year old sit (are there any facilities for seating them)? Thanks!

Think it would be a tight squeeze, it would fit four on each side and one on the end with a baby on your lap.
