Walking the Regent’s Canal

Canals make Venice famous.  But, did you know there are miles of lovely canals crossing London?  I certainly forget that sometimes!

Earlier this week we walked 5.7 miles of the 8.6 mile long Regent’s Canal.  The canal winds from West to East London.  We started the walk in picturesque Regent’s Park and finished in Hackney.  It was a mostly sunny day and we got to see many interesting sights along the way – grand houses, art work, cute canal side cafes and of course, people watching.  Along with lots of colourful canal boats and parts of the route showed where new meets old.

Have you ever walked along the canals in London?

  1. Looks like London’s getting some spring time weather! Like Christine, I had no idea there were canals in London. There is so much of London I have yet to explore, I can’t wait to return at some point.

    • The sun is coming, yay! Now we just need it to warm up 😉 There is so so much in London, I’ve lived here most of my life and there are still so many places I haven’t been too – I love that!

  2. I walked along the canal just last weekend (finally had some good weather). I guess I didn’t realise it was so long, though! Lovely pictures.

  3. Hello, dear Marcella! In November, we are going in London for the third time in my life, Regent’s canal is on my list already! Thanks ❤
