    One of my all time favourite parts of London. Be sure to walk the full length of it from Canary Wharf to Little Venice. Great for running, strolling and - alas - cycling, but if you do bike, be nice to the pedestrians.

    Regent's Canal is one of my very favorite places to visit in London when it is warm out - especially the stretch that runs from the Islington neighborhood of Angel to Victoria Park. Stroll, bike or jog along with the locals. Or dine in the adorable cafes that pop up unexpectedly along the canal, like The Towpath Cafe and The Narrow Boat. On Saturdays, it makes a great afternoon to walk along the canal, visit The Broadway Market and end the day lounging in Victoria Park. Aww, London. I miss you.

    Regent's Canal, which stretches from west to east London...is one of London's best kept little secrets. I didn't start discovering the canal walks until a year after I moved to London. There is so much to discover along London's canal, from Little Venice to the fast west, to the canal pubs in Camden Town, and the pop-up coffee stalls along the way. I particularly enjoy the east London bit. Grab a snack from Broadway Market and then make your way to Angel along the Canal, stopping at lovely floating cafes and book shops along the way.

    I love a walk along Regent's Canal - I sometimes joke that my whole life revolves around the canal.. not for of the truth really, my studio, everywhere I've lived and everywhere I've worked have always been minutes from the stretch between Mile End and Kingsland Basin.

    I love to look at the houseboats down the side of Victoria Park and love it when the floating market is on at Roman Road bridge, by the Palm Tree pub.

    The canal was built in the early 19th century to link paddington basin with the river Thames at limehouse. You can still walk the length of the canal, making it popular with runners

    Seeing London the quiet way, away from all the traffic and noise was such an unexpected delight.

    Regent's Canal is a canal in the north of London and at 13 km long makes for a great walk. We didn't walk the entire thing - we started in Camden and finished at Regent's Park. It was a beautiful sunny day and Regent's Canal provided a great respite from the hustle and bustle of London.

    Regent's Canal starts at Little Venice and ends at Limehouse Basin in Docklands and is part of London's Grand Union Canal.

    A quiet and atmospheric waterway, Regent's Canal passes by parks, a zoo, Camden Market, Victorian warehouses and celebrity hangouts.

    We like going for runs along the Canal starting from Camdentown towards Maida Vale. There is a neighborhood of barges that are parked on the canal and host a wide range of eccentric characters who make their homes in these 15 x 40 foot barges.

    Not worth doing in and of itself, but if you are in the neighborhood of Camden Town and Primrose you might as well go for a stroll to see a different view of London.

    Pure escapism from hectic London. Boat trips good. Walk to London Zoo for a change
