We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.


The London area, including Paddington and the Olympic Park stretches from the Upper Grand Union to the River Stort. With inner-city and suburban areas enjoying these beautiful waterways.

Read our plans, what's coming up, our most recent successes and how you can get involved.

You can find more recent information in our London Boating Bulletin Blog.

Our varied stretches range from the bustle and vibrancy around Camden Lock to the quiet stretches of the Slough Arm. There is the scale of Docklands, which even Canary Wharf and its neighbours do not dwarf and the rural Rivers Lee and Stort in Hertfordshire and Essex.

Along with our partnership, we care for 100km of waterways across London. Steeped in historical and environmental interest, you can get around to view it all on foot, bike or boat.

Check out the Londonist's series on London canals.
