The Regent's Canal

regents canal.jpg

The Regent's Canal runs through the north end of Camden Town. Canal-boat trips along the canal from Camden Lock are a popular activity, particularly in the summer months.

Many of the handrails by the bridges show deep marks worn by the towropes by which horses pulled canal barges until the 1950s. Camden Lock is a traditional manually operated double canal lock.  A large complex of weekend street markets operate around the Lock. The towpath is a pedestrian and cycle route which runs continuously from Little Venice through Camden Lock to the Islington Tunnel.  A regular waterbus service operates along the Regent's Canal from Camden Lock. Boats depart every hour during the summer months, heading westwards around Regent's Park, calling at London Zoo and on towards Maida Vale. Sightseeing canal-boat trips run from Camden Lock to Little Venice.
