Exploring the UK: Regents Canal, London

Ah North London. One of my favourite parts of the city. I love the fact that each place is so different. It almost feels like each place is a little village within a big city. Sometimes it doesn't even feel like you're in the city at all. Angel is brilliant for a night out. Camden is great for trying lots of new foods.  Primrose Hill is a fantastic place to soak up the city sights. Regents Park is the perfect place to lose a few hours. The list goes on and on.

A new place I've recently discovered in North London is Regents Canal. Last weekend was the first time I'd taken a walk down the canal. I'd sat on the walls in camden eating street food and has some outfits snapped in Kings Cross. But never walked along it so I decided to take advantage of the beautiful sunshine and tick it off my list.

Starting at Granary Square, we started to head north. Buzzing with cyclists, dog walkers and people sitting at the edge indulging in a few ciders, it didn't feel like we were in the capital city at all. We walked and walked until we hit Camden. We battled through the crowds at Camden Lock before rejoining the canal front and walking past London Zoo in Regents Park. We left the canal for a trip up to Primrose Hill to take in the city in all it's glory. If you carry on you'll hit Little Venice.

All in all the leisurely walk takes about 50 minutes. A good stroll to burn off lunch, admire the pretty houses and be at nature. One I'll definitely be doing again when summer hits.


  1. Such a great idea, definitely one to add to my London Bucket List!

  2. It looks great! I miss London! Thanks for the tip!

  3. That was the best part of going to university in Granary Square. We'd leave Saint Martins and end up in Camden for drinks and it was always such a nice walk.
