Waterbus Boat Trip Description

Travel from picturesque Little Venice to vibrant Camden Town along the Regent’s Canal in this tour. This waterway is a leisurely corridor through London, navigated by leisure boats and lined with quirky houseboats.

You’ll pass by Regent’s Park, the grounds of London Zoo, and through the echoey depths of the 248-meter Maida Hill tunnel. Each boat has slide-opening windows throughout, so everyone gets a view. As you pass through London Zoo, keep an eye out for warthogs and African hunting dogs, which can often be seen as the boat passes their canal-side enclosure.

Travel past the homes of well-known musicians, actors, and celebrities. You will also be able to see the expansive and landscaped back gardens of grand houses used by ambassadors and visiting international diplomats. Arrive in the heart of Camden Market, home to a vast array of world-class traders and international cuisines.
