Kentish Town Lock Open Day

Things to do, Quirky events Free

Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that events are still happening.

These free family open days take place at a busy spot on London's canal network where the lock gates, which have been there since the 1980s, are being replaced with shiny new ones. The Kentish Town lock has to be drained in order to fit them, meaning the chamber is free for visitors to walk along, admiring the 200 year-old brickwork as they go. The Canal & River Trust will be on hand to give visitors more information about the work going on, as well as providing them with a history of Regent's Canal. Sensible footwear must be worn to enter the lock chamber. Access to the site is via the Chalk Farm Road or Kentish Town Road in Camden (NW1 8AF).
