Admit it - you travel through Kings Cross and St Pancras stations every day. But have you thought about that waterway you pass as your train leaves the station? Sitting just behind the stations is the Regent's Canal. It's an unexpected oasis of calm and peace amid the hectic pace of long distance rail travel.

Just a short walk away you'll discover Camley Street Natural Park - a quiet corner in the heart of the city, right next to Regent's Canal. For history lovers, the London Canal Museum will give you a unique perspective of the heritage right on your doorstep.
