Short read: Exactly what it says on the tin.

Long read: One of the 25 different canal walks we conduct in partnership with the Inland Waterways Association. That partnership should be music to your ears. It means you’ll be guided by an expert. All of our canal walks guides are members of the IWA.  Boat owners, they know the canals, their history, their particulars, their curiosities, their secrets. And since it all comes down to the guiding and local knowledge, well, you’ll get my drift. This canal walk is bookended by Kensal Rise cemetery and Little Venice. In short, two of the most extraordinary “bookends” in the entire repertory of some 500 different London Walks. And along the way, the Grand Union Canal – the Cinderella of London’s canal network.

The Grand Union Canal  – Kensal Green to Little Venice walk takes place at 2.30 pm on Saturday, July 29. Meet Roger or one of his Canal Guides colleagues just outside the exit of Kensal Green  Tube
