Hidden Depths Canal Cruises

Join us at Hidden Depths Canal Cruises for a trip down the canal, and celebrate your special day with family and friends in a unique and memorable way. Our trips are based in the King's Cross, Camden and Islington areas, which provide scenic routes of the Regent's Canal and offer the opportunity to cruise through the 200 year old, mile-long Islington tunnel, one of the longest in Britain! You can also experience the ingenuity of canal locks which date back to the Industrial Revolution and make it possible for water to travel uphill!

If your party is an intimate group of 12 or less, Lapwing would be the vessel for you; it's just £110 per hour (minimum 2hr booking period), and food, alcohol/drinks and music cab brought on board.

If, however, your group is larger and consists of up to 42 persons, then it would be our bigger boat, Freda - a Lapwing lookalike but longer! The cost is £210 per hour (based upon 42 people, only £5 per person), and again, you can bring along food, alcohol/drinks and music.

We also have themed trips for Hallowe'en and Christmas and the boats are elaborately decorated for both occasions!

Should we get the odd shower, worry not, both boats have covers which can be attached at a moment's notice.

Booking in advance highly recommended by email or phone:
