Schedule, Prices & Booking

With the coming of the canal in the early 19th century and the railways in the middle of the 19th century this part of London expanded rapidly. Since then the area has developed a reputation for being the home of inventors, writers, artists and poets. Benjamin Britten lived in St. John’s Wood and worked on his opera, ‘Peter Grimes’, W.B Yeats and Arthur Rackham lived in Fitzroy Road and Friedrich Engels lived in Regent’s Park Road – to name but a few!

Early morning at Camden Lock

In between the story of an expanding and changing London there is an opportunity to enjoy some of the best views of the capital on offer. Much of this walk follows the canal towpath and is an opportunity to escape the hustle and bustle of the modern capital. It is sometimes easy to forget on this walk that we are in London!

There are numerous opportunities along the walk to stop for refreshments and to watch the world go by. As the walk ends near Camden Market there is a chance to sample the delights of this bustling and lively corner of the metropolis.
