Come along on Sunday 29th June for a canal trip from Camden to Paddington and back!

About the trip
London's canal's and the architecture of the buildings that back onto them are a part of London many Londoner's don't get to see, the Regent's Canal which we will be travelling on was built in 1816 as part of a regeneration of the area.

We will be starting at Camden Lock, travelling through Regents Park, through London Zoo, through St John's Wood and onto Paddington Basin.  We will then return back.

The trip lasts about 1h 30mins and we will be travelling on the 'Jenny Wren' (picture below) at a relaxing 3-4 miles an hour.  We also have a guided commentary on the boat.

Cost is £10 per person, to reserve your place, please pay in advance (either by Paypal or at an event in the next few weeks) as we only have limited seats on the boat.

There won't be any food or drink available on the boat, so feel free to bring your own if you wish.

We should be back at Camden at about 6pm.  Afterwards we will head to a local pub for a drink.

If you can't see us outside the station, please call.

Look out for the group sign -







Hope to see you there!

    My 1st trip with the group. I thoroughly enjoyed the informative canal Boat Trip. So much history well worth the trip. Thank you Robert.

    Painfully long wait between announced meeting time and debarkation. Boat trip, though pleasant, seemed rather short.

    Thanks Robert. It was very good as usual, only wish It was a warm, sunny day. It would have been perfect, but its not Roberts fault.

    Hello I don't want to be listed as not having turned up! I was told the event was oversubscribed and I would get a refund.
