Self Guided London Walking Tour Of Regent’s Canal | Great Day Out

Self Guided London Walking Tour Of Regent's Canal

Keep reading to follow along on my self guided London walking tour Of Regent’s Canal.

The Regents Canal walking route is possibly my favourite walk in London. It’s a beautiful route starting in Limehouse, East London going all the way through London to Little Venice in West London. The route is approximately 8.5 miles long and takes about 3 hours.

You may want to walk the whole route but for most people, that’s a bit more than they would usually want to do for a typical weekend stroll. I would recommend you do it the way I always have which is to start at King’s Cross instead. Google says from here it takes 1 h 10 minutes to walk the route, however, if you’re stopping or taking any detours like I usually do, I’d say it’s more like 2 hours. The route I’m going to show you below starts in King Cross’s top shopping and food village, Coal Drops Yard, takes you past Camden Market, through London Zoo, to the top of Primrose Hill, past a bunch of multi-million-pound houses and finally finishing at picturesque, Little Venice. To make it easier for you, I’ve even created a little map for you to follow.

Ready? Here’s your self guided London walking tour Of Regent’s Canal. When checking the phone on the route, be careful with corners and sidewalks because you may cause an accident, if this happens, ask for the local laws about sidewalk accidents and liability.

Before your walk, stop for a coffee and pastry at one of Coal Drop’s Yard many cafes and restaurants.  To give you fuel, right? 😉

You can even pick up a boat trip in Camden if you fancy. There are lots of boat tours along the way, including The London Waterbus Company that will take you from Camden to Little Venice if you prefer not to walk.

Around here you will have to get off the canal as part of it is private. The map I created shows you where to get back on.
