We took the London Waterbus from Camden Lock to Little Venice on the 12:15 Sunday sailing. It was £9.00 each for a single ticket, you pay for the tickets once onboard. The journey time was approximately 50 mins. The canal boat stops at the Zoo...More

Brilliant! What a great experience if you want to travel to/From Paddington, London Zoo or Camden without catching tube, taxi or bus. It takes about 50mins, costs £9 (absolute bargain) all along the canal leading to from Camden Town, just a great way to travel!...More

A nice little canal trip through Camden. We left from the zoo, a shorter trip - if you leave from little Venice the trip is double in length for only a few quid more.
