What a cool experience! You board a 19th century canal boat in Little Venice for a 45 minute or so cruise. It is probably the closest thing to Venice, Italy that I will ever experience since I haven't been to Italy yet. If you begin your cruise here, you will get a live commentary along the canal of the history and hardships along this waterway. Back then, a horse was used to pull the large boat along the canal by way of a very narrow path on the side of the water.
As you float down the canal, there are plenty of things to see. There are many other canal boats that are resting on the water while some are passing you by in the opposite direction. There are also many other sites to see along the waterway. You will go right through the London Zoo on your way to the last stop in Camden Lock. There, you find some quaint shops, restaurants, and a pretty famous outdoor market. I didn't have time to visit there since I had to take a 10 minute walk back down the canal path to go to the Zoo. Now that was an interesting experience in itself.
Please try to add this to your list of places to see and experience as it is so worth the trip. You will need to book your reservation online as the space limited on each cruise. Then, you just show up with your printed email showing that you booked it and reserved it. It is part of the London pass. You are simply reserving a spot on the both and not paying for it online. Just be sure to write that in the comments section of the booking.
Enjoy your ride through history on this waterway in the middle of London.
