This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Paddington Basin, Park Royal, London England

These were but to almost be like the western docks of London. Now redeveloped for business and leisure with possibly the only folding bridge in the world. We start along the famous Grand Union Canal.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Little Venice, Regent's park, London W2 1TH England

Little Venice is truly serene and beautiful and is where we will leave the Grand Union Canal and head off on Regents Canal.

Regents Canal, built to connect the River Thames and the docks tot he canal network that linked London to the great cities of the north.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: ZSL London Zoo, Regents Park Outer Circle, London NW1 4RY England

We walk right past the aviary and you never know when you might catch a glimpse of a giraffe or camel!

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Camden Market, Camden Lock Pl, Camden Town, London NW1 8AF, UK

Camden Lock is one of few parts of the walk where it is remotely busy. Once an industrial area, now it is buzzing with cafes and restaurants

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: The Stables Market, 842 Chalk Farm Rd, Camden Town, London NW1 8BF, UK

The Stables Market, now a funky shopping destination but originally it housed the horses who worked the canals before the invention of boat engines.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: MTV Studios, 17-29 Hawley Cres, Camden Town, London NW1 8TT, UK

From the canal side we will see MTV Studios and those relating to Viacom and others. Everyone loves the views and life around the canal.

The canal passes through leafy Regents Park and some of the finest private homes in this part of London.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Gasholder Park, Kings Cross, London N1C 4AB, UK

This 'little' park is built into an old giant gas holder. It is a good mix of the old and new that typifies this part of the canal.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Granary Square, 4 Stable Street, London N1C 4AB England

Another old industrial area that had found new life as one Londons newest and largest squares or plazas.

Duration: 5 minutes

Stop At: Coal Drops Yard, Kings Cross, London N1C 4DQ England

Right next to the canal, this district used to be where the coal was stored for the nearby train stations. In the last year or so it has had millions spent on it to re-open as a hidden but high-end shopping destination.

Duration: 10 minutes

Stop At: Word On The Water, Regent's Canal Towpath, Kings Cross, London N1C 4LW, UK

My favourite of all the barges on the canal. A boat that is also a really rather good bookshop.

Kings Place is a hub for music, art, dialogue and food in London's Kings Cross

Duration: 10 minutes

Our guide, Stephen got in touch with us to make sure we knew when and where to meet. He was very helpful and gave us useful information about the history of the canal and neighborhoods in our walk. There are a number of photo opportunities where you can capture the many barges that cruise and dock on the canal. This is a long walk and so we recommend good walking shoes. The tour ends in the Camden area where there are a number of shops and restaurants. If you have already done walking tours of the city center and its pubs, I would recommend this tour for the different perspective that it presents.
