Overview
More
The Pirate Castle is a boating and outdoor activities charity based in a unique, fully-accessible community centre on the Regent's Canal in the heart of Camden Town, London. We have been flying the flag for opportunity and adventure on the regent's canal for over 50 years and offer a range of activities for all ages and abilities, including kayaking and canoeing sessions, skippered canal boat cruises, boat handling courses, School Holiday Schemes and more! Only 200 metres from Camden Lock and less than five minutes' walk from Camden Town tube station, The Pirate Castle is the perfect central London location for community events and activities of all kinds. Our newly-refurbished Main Hall and Club Rooms are available to hire for community and private/corporate events, such as projects and activity sessions, parties, rehearsals, concerts, meetings, team building days and more. All of the money raised through the hire of our services and community spaces help fund our charitable activities, which provide adventurous recreation and training opportunities on The Regent's Canal for children, young people and disability groups.
