Jason's Trip has been running barges up and down the Regent's Canal since 1951. They only serve two stops: Little Venice and Camden Lock, but if you're going to do it then we definitely recommend the boarding at Little Venice, because then you'll get a live commentary included.

You can usually just turn up and pay on the day, but you might like to book in advance on their website. You can also get it included with a London Pass.

The beautifully painted century-old canal boat was originally used to transport cargo up and down the river before being converted into a passenger ferry. A guide will stand at the front and reveal some of the history of the canal, and share some stories from the canal's hey-day.

Craig has been on Jason's Trip himself and written a review on his blog, with some photos showing what you can see. The best bit is when you float past London Zoo, and can see some of the birds inside the giant wire-frame Snowdon Aviary.

He also recommends getting there a bit early and having a walk around Little Venice, which is a very pretty part of London. The area around Maida Avenue is the best section -- check out his London blog for a full review of Little Venice. And you may as well read his review of Camden Town whilst you at it, for when you get to the other end. He recommends walking around the lock, and especially the famous markets (don't miss Stables Market -- that's the best one).

Feel free to ask Craig some questions about Jason's Trip. You might also like to write your own review on the forum.

 

 Guest – “Can you take it the other way around - from Camden Lock to Little Venice and back? Thanks, Ian”

Admin – “You can do, yes. But they only do the live commentary from Little Venice to Camden. You don't get any commentary coming back the other way”

Craig’s review – “Jason's Trip run a boat between Little Venice and Camden Lock. It's one of those narrow boats (houseboats with the sides missing) that retirees take waterway holidays on: low enough to float under the branches, slow enough not to disturb the ducks, and painted like one of those fairground gypsy caravans. But you definitely need a lazy day for it. It's the kind of ride… continued”
