Ages: all ages

Venue type: Outdoor

Get away from the crowds in Central London and go for a quiet, riverside walk along Regent’s Canal. Experience the unique “canal life” atmosphere of the area, as you meet the local community of boaters. Each boathouse has its own personal charm, so why not play a game and pick a favourite for each member of the family.  

You can stroll along the entire length of the canal and it will take you a couple of hours the most. At one point the route passes by London Zoo, so if you’re luck you might spot an exotic bird, or another curious animal. Fancy a boat trip? You can hop on one of the tours to and from Little Venice, Camden Lock Market and London Zoo.

Pack a sandwich from home and enjoy a picnic on a bench by the water. The peaceful vibe of the riverside will make you forget all about the noisy London life. Quiet time with the kids isn’t something you get often in the capital!
