This walk takes you through some of North London's most interesting areas - from trendy, bustling Camden, through Regent's Park and London Zoo, past the colourful houseboats moored on the Regent's Canal and finishing at the stylish waterways of Little Venice. There are also several cafes and pubs along the route - perfect for a lazy weekend stroll in the capital. Some parts of the canal path are closed at dusk (or 20:00 in summer) so you may have to leave the canal path once or twice.
