  • It's a 13.8 km long canal that runs through most of North London, from Paddington to Limehouse Basin in the East of the city (which then joins the Thames). Crosses Broadway Market, Kings Cross, Camden Town, London Zoo and a little further West has created the famous Little Venice. Was used primarily to transport goods, but was later supplanted by improvements to the British rail system. Since 1979 the channel is used to produce electricity in the area between St John's Wood and City Road, the Regent's Canal towpath, called Regent's Canal Path, is great for walks and is dotted with small coffee, but you must keep in mind that it is one of the main routes for those moves across London by bike: you should move to the side every moment to let cyclists racers speed between you and the water. To visit all the channel without walking, you can use the services of the London Waterbus Company, doing that is a kind of cruising on one of their boats. Interesting experience
