Regent's Canal

14 km / 9 miles

Gtr London
The Regent's Canal crosses west-east just to the north of central London. It is popular as a cycleway. It provides a link from the Paddington arm of the Grand Union Canal, just north-west of Paddington Basin, in the west, to the Limehouse Basin and the River Thames in east London. The canal is shown on street atlases.

From 'Little Venice', attractive green sections pass grand waterside mansions in St Johns Wood, through London Zoo that the canal bisects, and later along the western edge of Victoria Park. Other parks en route include Mile End Park. Some of the canal is in tunnels, by-passed by short street walks above. The route ends at the Thames after passing through Limehouse Basin, now developed for waterside housing and with views to the Canary Wharf towers.
