Regent’s Canal Walk, Part 2

After enjoying our first canal walk a couple of weeks ago, we embarked on a new one yesterday, starting from Camden Road station and following the towpath from Camden Lock Market. We used the Jubilee Greenway route guide from Transport for London (Section 3) as our reference, which takes you through Camden, King’s Cross, Barnsbury, Islington, Hackney and Bethnal Green.

Regent’s Canal Walk, Part 1

Gosh, it has been absolutely ages since I have written a post on here! I have no excuses, just life! Anyhow, this post is about a trip on Saturday we did to a part of London we had never been to before. The Regent’s Canal Walk, as part of the Jubilee Greenway, takes you through Little Venice, past Regent’s Park and London Zoo, finishing at Camden Town.

Unfortunately, we didn’t quite complete this walk, because one of my sandals started to fall apart as we were going past Regent’s Park, so we did a detour that involved meandering around Primrose Hill, before getting to Chalk Farm tube station to go home.

Hooray, another set of outdoor sculptures to find…this time Shaun the Sheep (created by Aardman) is popping up all across London in a project called Shaun in the City. Last Thursday, we did the first one, Shaun’s Trail, which took us from Oxford Circus, down Regent Street, through Piccadilly Circus, China Town, Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square, and finishing at the Mall.

Bloomsbury: Books About Town

Early last week, we did our fourth (and final) Books About Town trail in London. This one was around the Bloomsbury area, running from Long Acre up to Tavistock Place. I’ve really enjoyed doing these trails, especially as I got to see parts of London I hadn’t seen before. Photos of the other book bench trails: Greenwich, Riverside and The City. Many thanks for visiting!
