Unde vei fi

Visit the Canal Museum for preliminary insights. Then sail to the new vibrant Granary Square plaza, formerly a busy shipping port. Chug on through locks, past gasholders, and moor up at world famous Camden Market, a nerve centre of artisan creativity. Or stay on board and sail back with us to Kings Cross.

We have such a lovely experience with a perfect weather. They have made us feel so welcome. Both are lovely and spacious. It was very enjoyable to meet other guests. It was lovely and relax atmosphere. We enjoyed leisurely ride down canal and through the many locks. We found canal museum very interesting as well. Thank you so much.

Simon & Sarah have such a unique story to offer. It was less a tour and more a leisurely cruise through a very hip, up-and-coming part of the city. We got to participate in maneuvering the locks and there were a couple o opportunities to get off the boat and explore the shore (markets, fascinating architecture, etc). We truly felt welcomed and would absolutely recommend this experience to anyone interested.

Thank you Sarah and Simon for an amazing day. We were given a brief tour in The London Canal Museum before the “real thing”. Sarah and Simon were wonderful hosts engaging with us every step of the way. Lunch and afternoon tea were an added bonus. This trip was a present from our daughter and we would highly recommend it to anyone who would like to while away a few peaceful relaxing hours on the canal with perfect travelling companions.

We had a brilliant afternoon with Simon and Sarah. They are fantastically attentive and interesting hosts who are knowledgeable and passionate about the canal network. The day was a perfect mix of delicious homecooked food on their boat, travelling on the canal, being able to help with the locks and spending time in Camden around the Lock. We had a wonderful afternoon. Highly recommended.

This is something very different. Unique! The right mix of history, education, relaxation and yummy food and treats. Great conversation. We did everything from moving the boat (sometimes in reverse) to operating the locks and sitting back and enjoying the view. A must do London experience 10/10

This is a must do experience for any seasoned to new traveller to London. We saw London from a completely different perspective. We learned some really interesting history about London canals; met some lovely people, including Simon and Sarah who are just great; ate some really good food; and, best of all, had fun actually navigating the canal in central London - we were enlisted to open lock gates, and tie up the boat. It was tremendous fun. This is an experience I would happily repeat - it was that good. Simon and Sarah take great care and clearly love sharing their canal boat lifestyle.
