Regent's Canal 200

In 2020 the Regent’s Canal will be 200 years old and we want to celebrate this amazing landmark.

Regent's Canal

Its eight-and-a-half miles weave through the heart of the capital and some of the city’s most diverse and compelling locations, providing health and happiness to millions of Londoners.

We want to:

  • Recognise the history of the canal and the role it has played for both London and the world
  • Look at its decline in the mid-twentieth century and how it was brought back to life so it's now more popular than ever
  • Celebrate the people and communities who made, and continue to make, it the thriving waterway we enjoy today
  • Look to what the future holds and how the canal can continue to make life better for everyone who uses it

Help us celebrate Regent's 200

In the coming months, together with volunteers and local people who love the canal, we’ll be developing a series of events so we can celebrate the 200th birthday in 2020 in style. If you want to get involved then get in touch.

We've also put together a short questionnaire and it'd be great to get your feedback. 

Take a look at the video below to give you a flavour of things. If you would like any more information about taking part in the Regent’s 200, please contact-us
