I love walking and I think it is the best way of exploring. And… let’s be honest – if you don’t walk in London, you’re only enjoying half of it! Today’s article is on a marvellous walk that will make you discover incredible scenery and hidden gems along the Regent’s Canal.
Where to Start: Little Venice
After getting to Paddington, head to Little Venice. A nice canal area with dozens of narrowboats all differently decorated. Fancy a coffee? What about having it on a boat? I had a Cappuccino at Waterside Cafè, highly recommended! But there is more… a floating Art Gallery (only open if there are exhibitions going on) and an Airbnb for those seeking a unique place to stay.
From here you can proceed towards Camden on foot (highly recommended to better enjoy everything) or by boat. In case you choose the latter the London Waterbus Company will take you there!
1st Stop: Regent’s Park and Primrose Hill
What I like the most about this part of the walk are the majestic villas facing the canal and I like dreaming of having one in the future – I will let you know if my dream comes true!
When you arrive at Regent’s Park take a moment to explore this huge green space, there is also a zoo!
And once you are there you can’t miss Primrose Hill. It is one of the free viewpoints from which you can take in marvellous views of the skyline!
Don’t forget the camera!
