Overview

Canal and River Cruises Ltd operate the Lady A, a 12 seater narrowboat on London's canals, based in the lovely laid-back area of Maida Vale known as Little Venice. We offer private tours for private parties of all sizes between 2 and 12 guests. A canal cruise is ideal for family celebrations, hen parties or just a day out with your friends. Our most popular cruise is 2 hours, slowly following the Regents Canal through Maida Vale and Regents Park and London Zoo before turning around at Camden Lock Market. We also specialise in custom made private cruises from two hours or more with an itinerary built just for you! Ask us for advice on where to go before and after your cruise to make a perfect day! A special rate is available for just one or two people. We are here to make your day special! Contact us by searching for Canal and River Cruises London in google as Trip Advisor has recently removed all contact details for this type of business. Not sure if this is permanent! Mike

I cruised from Little Venice to the Camden markets. A great relaxing trip filled with different sites and London history. Why not explore the wonderful cuisine opportunities at the markets when you disembark.

Took the canal boat from Camden Market to Little Venice. Very tranquil. Stops at the Zoo then Little Venice and takes about an hour. A lovely way to escape the crowds of London and see things from a different perspective. Reasonably priced and cheaper rate...More

Organized a surprize birthday party on the boat. Would recommend no more than 8 people on board, you can bring your drinks (reasonable amount), snacks and music. Mike is a great captain, his practical advices were really helpful. Overall great experience!
