We walked from Little Venice, Regents Park (and saw wild dogs - in cages :-)) Camden market (with a lot of food stables), and ended our trip in Central St Martins (have a look in the Waitrose supermarket). A top walk.

This part of London is really nice! It's an ideal place to find some peace and quite. We walked from King's Cross to Primrose. It's nice to feel some nature, to see the boats, to stop at Camden .... Very recommended!!

Went to visit Camden Market and discovered this canal walk. It took us through new parts of London with a lot nice things to and explore. Our walk ended at Paddington station. It was nice to see this old and historical part of London's history and with locks and narrow boats.

You can take the Regent Canal to go from Camden town to Little Venice by foot or by bike!! I really reccomend it!

This peaceful walkway is a nice break from the busy hustle and bustle of one of the world's great cities. Althought it can be a bit grotty in places, it is quite safe. The walk from Camden Town to Limehouse Basis - or the other way around - takes about four or five hours total, with lots of opportunities for... More

I am staying with my boyfriend in London and have been walking to meet him after work. Part of the journey includes walking alongside Regents Canal, and it's been my favorite part. I've only walked the section from Camden to Lisson Grove, but along the way you pass through the London Zoo and by some really pretty houses and gardens.... More

Interesting piece of London History. Walked from Camden Town to Canal Museum near Kings Cross. About a 1.5 mile walk along the canal.

Barges use this canal to travel all the way to east Anglia and depending where you are you might have quite an idyllic view. Regents Canal itself runs north of London zoo, going via Little Venice further west. Check the maps and connections if you are really interested in this.

We walked from Kings Cross up the Regents Canal to Regents Park. It was a sunny day and the canal was very still. We started our walk from King Cross station. You can walk behind Kings Cross to the canal quite easily walking towards St Martins London School of Art. We walked passed canal boats along the way and some... More
