On a sunny Sunday morning my wife and took the tube to the Camden Lock Market and after exploring there we took the London Waterbus boat to Little Venice (close to Paddington station. As you pass along the canal you see all kinds of boats moored, the occasional boat in motion and people out walking both their children and their... More

Start at Little Venice and make your way down to Islington. Easy walk for all and a varied and fascinating change of scenery as you go. Take a little detour to Abbey Road Studios and watch all the tourists crossing Abbey Road on the famous crossing. Note the gas holders in the new development by Kings Cross and stop in... More

Off the beaten track for most tourists, the canal boat ride is very nice. The old canal is rich with history, and now is full of houseboats and pigeons. Still scenic and serene, goes by the zoo, and other attractions. Not too expensive, and the boats have been plying these waters for many years. We went from Little Venice to... More

A walk by the canals is recommended. We were really fortunate to choose a lovely sunny day, and even luckier when a barge used the lock to get from one level to another. A few places to stop and eat, have a drink with an outlook of the canals. A very pleasant interlude for a moment or two.

The neighborhood is lively with nice restaurants, and walking along the canal can be nice. But when I visited last time in summer the canal was completely covered with a thick carpet of bright green algae, bejeweled with trash.

Started our walk at Little Venice after a walk around the basin to view the various narrow boats moored here. Then pushed on with a gentle stroll to Camden Lock and spent some time in the markets. After this is was a straight walk through to Limehouse with plenty to see and various narrow boats making the trip down the... More

I entered the canal via the Caledonian Road, not far from King's Cross Station. I only walked a short part of the canal as I decided to just sit for a while to relax watching the gentle ripples on the water and the sun causing it to glisten. It is a very relaxing place given how busy London can be.... More

If you want a charming walk/run away from the hustle and bustle... walk, jog or cycle. Suggest walking along the stretch from Limehouse Basin to Angel.

We took a lovely leisurely stroll from Little Venice (which is a short walk from Warwick station) to Camden. Such a peaceful lovely walk by the canal. It's so tranquil and pretty. There is some great graphite art along the way too. We arrived in Camden in time for lunch time so the place was PACKED. I mean SERIOUSLY BUSY.... More
