What a lovely way to spend 40-or-so-minutes on a sunny afternoon. After the hustle and bustle of Camden market, it was a joy to glide along the canal, passing through London Zoo's aviary, and taking in the sights of Regent's Park and Little Venice. Our charming host was a font of knowledge on London's waterways and directed us to a lovely pub to enjoy a pint with a view. It's a great little journey that should please both Londoners and tourists alike.

Great trip, a side of London, Londoners like me don't often see. This is an informative trip, that is also relaxing, with a friendly and inviting atmosphere. A nice trip to take as a couple, or on your own to get away from the hustle and bustle. You can combine a love of both by getting off in Camden and shopping or for lunch and then a relaxing return trip. I thoroughly enjoyed with friends on my birthday.

Richard Branson started his journey here! It's an amazing place! Come to www.lvlounge.co.uk for great cocktails, fine conversation, relaxed atmosphere in this great area... 

A thoroughly enjoyable trip for a couple in their 20s, although we did have great weather for it.

The boatride was nice but nothing more than that. The lady doing the running commentary was sweet and she had a nice voice. The ride is more like 35 minutes than 45 and it's really not that interesting to do the roundtrip so we got off at Camden. (one can come back for the return ride 1,5 hours later) Wen you get off the boat in Camden it feels like you're setup for a tourist trap, with massive consumption at the tourist level all around. Going into Camden this feeling fades and you fel like you're more in the 'real world'. Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to really explore Camden but it seemed interesting enough.
