This boat ride offers a change of scenery from the main tourist sites in London. Our hostess was very friendly, cheerful and welcoming. The boat departed on time but there was no commentary at all during our trip from Little Venice to Camden which was...More

I set off in London's Little Venice on this canal boat which takes you all the way to Camden Lock and vice versa. You get to travel along a canal that is both a Nature Reserve and homes to numerous people. You'll be surprised how...More

My goddaughter her boyfriend and myself had a bit of time to kill in Camden, so decided to hop on the water bus. I think the word that best describes it is serene. Gently moving along the canal looking at the scenery, is a lovely...More

Discovered this little gem on one of our many, many London trips. It's always funny to see how quite Lockside Camden is, as compared to Camden High Street. We had a wonderful boat ride to Little Venice. Very friendly staff. Nice to see what's going...More

We loved this! Arriving at Little Venice was jaw dropping anyway - just so lovely only a stone's throw away from Paddington. We walked from Paddington to the Waterbus. You can't prebook so arrived about 15 minutes early (timetable on their website). There was already...More

After a visit to Regents Park we walked up into Camden and into Camden Lock where we soon found the waterbus boat moored up and boarded for a trip to Little Venice. You get a very different angle on this part of London from water...More

Quite an enjoyable trip down the Regents canal. It was very peaceful and interesting, even though it was a Saturday and the towpath was quite busy. Disappointingly the trip ended at Primrose Hill, and we had to walk to Camden.

Went on this on a trip to Camden, was told about the trip down the canal. Trip was really informative and wasn’t that expensive. Staff were great. Would definitely recommend the only thing that spoilt the trip was the weather as it decided to rain...More

We took this canal cruise from the Camden Market to the zoo. To be let out just outside the zoo was18 pounds for 5 of us. It was maybe 1/2 mile. The seats were uncomfortable and it was desperately hot. Live and learn.

On time and efficient. A pleasant way to travel to/from London Zoo to Little Venice. Prices are reasonable too

Book ahead, it will be no good just turning up. Car parking was not nearby, we arrived by underground. There will be a maximum number that the boat is licensed to hold. They give you a time to arrive. We waited possibly 45... More

I would imagine not that difficult at all: Find the canal and stroll along it, to the northwest, from Paddington station up to the triangular pond-like part of the canal in Little Venice. It is a 5-10 min walk and quite a... More
