The Regents Canal in London

The Regent's canal is a 9 mile canal that stretches from Paddington to Limehouse basin where it ends into River Thames. On our boat trip from Little Venice to Camden we passed through the Regents Canal.

The canal starts a little distance from the Paddington Basin, moves to Little Venice, then passes through the Maida Hill tunnel. It then passees through the Regents Park area and the ZSL Zoo, continuing to Camden town and King's cross central. Then it turns at Camley street natural park and heads towards St Pancras station and passes through the Islington tunnel and joins the Hertford Union canal. It eventually meets the Limehouse cut and joins the River Thames.

Though we did not travel the entire stretch, we covered some part of it which offered very lovely sights - lots of moored boats, tunnels and some stunning waterside architecture. The journey was beautiful. We lingered around in the Camden Market for some time before heading back on the same route on the towpath. The walk was even more pleasant.
