Overview

The London Canal Museum tells the colourful story of London's canals, their people, cargoes, boats and trade, and the horses that pulled the boats and carts on the streets. See our recreated stable and Horse Power exhibition. Discover the amazing Victorian trade in natural ice, brought from Norway to keep London cool, for this charming waterside building was once an ice warehouse. Look down into a vast ice well, uniquely preserved. See archive film, temporary exhibitions, costume, “roses and castles” art, and children can follow the horse’s trail! Download free MP3 audio tours of the canal walk from Camden, and of the museum, from our website.
