Canal and River Cruises Ltd

We operate the Lady A, a small passenger narrowboat based in London's lovely Little Venice, for private parties, so you’ll be the only people onboard apart from our skipper.

We are now open again after the compulsory lockdown, and delighted to be able to accommodate up to ten passengers, subject to reduction if we still have Covid rules.


Two hours or three hours is ideal for a leisurely cruise along the Regents Canal on a route which takes us through the exclusive Maida Vale, Maida Hill tunnel and Lisson Grove before entering Regents Park including a section of London Zoo.

When we get to Camden we will turn around for the retrurn trip, although one way routes are also available including the popular trip from Little Venice through Camden to Angel, which takes three hours.

Bring a picnic and some drinks while a professional skipper will be with you to do the boat handing, so all you do is sit back and enjoy the ride, with an optional commentary.

Half price rates for smaller parties of one or two make this ideal for that special occasion, or if you're visiting London I can be your tour guide too and share my knowledge of the canals, including the possibility of a visit to the London Canal Museum on our longer tours.

We open year round subject to weather,

You can book online or by phone

Disability Access Information

Lady A welcomes everyone but like all narrowboats the traditional design means there are four steep stairs from the deck level into the cabin so whilst access to the mooring is available for all, its not possible to accommodate those who are unable to walk a few steps including the entrance stairs.
