Regent's Canal, London

4.4
#2 of 14 in Nature in London
Built in 1801, Regent's Canal links the Paddington Arm of the Grand Junction Canal with the River Thames in East London. Take a boat trip and travel leisurely from Little Venice to Camden Market (or vice versa), with stops in Regent's Park and the London Zoo, or walk the paths lining the picturesque canals by foot. Notice three historical canal tunnels that you pass through on your way. Boats leave regularly and are provided by several different companies.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
