London’s Canals

London’s Canals

Loading Likes...

When one thinks of European Canals the thoughts usually are focused on the Netherlands or Venice, Italy. Prior to moving to London I had rarely associated the concept of Canals with the United Kingdom. However since moving I have received a lesson in the rich history of canals in the United Kingdom; and most recently participated in a tour of Regent’s Canal, in North London.

The Regent’s Canal first opened in 1816 and has had a rich history since then. We toured the area between Camden Town and Paddington; where laden canal barges used to transport their goods around London and towards the north of the United Kingdom.
