Regent's Park Canal
From Limehouse Basin in Docklands, the Regent's Canal passes through Mile End, Hackney, Islington, King's Cross, Camden, Regents Park through to Little Venice and Paddington.
Canals were built to carry Britain's goods 200 years ago, long before the advent of railways and motorways. Time moves on and, sadly, commercial boats and barges have all but disappeared, but the waterways still retain their charm and character.
Most canals have towpaths that were used by the horses which pulled the boats. They are very pleasant to walk and are teaming with wild flowers and animals.
