Take a canal cruise along the historic Regents Canal:
The Regent’s Canal runs from the Limehouse Basin in East London’s Docklands to Little Venice in north-west London’s Maida Vale. You can do canal cruises on the prettiest and most interesting section of the canal – between Camden Lock and Little Venice.

Jason’s Trip is the original Regent’s Canal tour. Jason is an authentic 100-year-old canal boat which was originally used as a cargo-vessel on the canals before being fitted with a diesel engine and converted to passenger-carrying duties.
The tour runs between Jason’s Wharf in Little Venice and Cafe Crema in Camden. It takes about forty-five minutes each way or one and a half hours round trip. On the leg from Little Venice up to Camden there is a live commentary from their trained guides who will tell you all about Regent’s Canal history from the 1800s to the present day.
