Jenny Wren is an open-sided canal narrow boat, decorated in the traditional style.We run regular sightseeing trips daily along the Regents Canal from Walkers Quay between March and November. We are the only trip boat to go through the Lock at Camden and our knowledgeable crew provide you with a live commentary during the cruise. The boat can be hired for private self-catered functions.

It was an amazing surprise. Jenny Wren cruise was wonderful. During 90 minutes, we could see a hide background of London. The guide was very polite and had much knowledge about the places.
