We love and care for your canals and rivers, because everyone deserves a place to escape.
We operate the Lady A, a small passenger narrowboat based in London's lovely Little Venice, for private parties of 1 to 12 people. Ideal for celebrations such as birthdays, anniversaries, hen parties or just for a group of friends on a day out.
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.
This listing has been added by a third party and we take no responsibility for information given.
Lady A welcomes everyone but 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.
