We took the 10am boat from Little Venice to Camden on a chilly but sunny morning. It was not crowded and would hesitate to take the trip if it was packed as the seats are wide enough for 1 and half people not 2. The...More

Having picked up this particular service for a canal cruise my friends and I experienced a most horrible incident. The water bus was on its way from Camden market where we boarded. We passed regents park and approached the long tunnel just before the destination...More

Nice way to reach Camden. Staff was fun and friendly. A great way to see parts of London often overlooked. Totally worth the 9£

Go from Camden Market, unattractive, to Little Venice, very nice. The full round trip would be a bit much. The other boat services seem to be more tour-centered. The water bus is for the simpler, more spontaneous canal rides that don’t require pre-booking. You ride...More

This is a great trip along the Regents canal, £14 return from Camden lock to Little Venice. The queue at Camden is right next to the Lock-side bar and kitchen so you can’t tell who is queuing for food or the boat trip! Our converted...More

I note that other reviews are less favorable, but we had a perfectly wonderful trip from "Little Venice" to Camden Market. The water bus departed at precisely 10 AM on Sunday and meandered past house barges, the London Zoo, and Kensington, to arrive at Camden...More

We have just rushed across London with tube line closures to catch the 13:15 boat from Little Venice to Camden as advertised on their website. We arrived at 13:10 only to see the blackboard showing 13:00!!!!! Why change the times? Next boat was 15:00. We...More

Book ahead, it will be no good just turning up. Car parking was not nearby, we arrived by underground. There will be a maximum number that the boat is licensed to hold. They give you a time to arrive. We waited possibly 45... More
