Stepping off the train at King’s Cross you’d be forgiven for thinking that you’re miles away from any open space or wildlife. However just a short walk away, up St Pancras Road you’ll discover Camley Street Natural Park, a unique two acres of wild green space next to the Regent ’s Canal. The industrial legacy of the canal gave birth to the park which was once a coal store. Find out more about the waterways’ past around the corner at the London Canal Museum where you can explore the 150 year history of these fascinating London landmarks.

As a student in London, I'm always on the lookout for free entertainment. Regent's Canal has become one of my favorite money-saving destinations for summer fun.
Despite being incredibly close to my house, I never realized that the tow path is a fantastic way to get around some parts of London, without having to deal with the noise or traffic of cars.
The canal is beautiful for a short...more
It's a beautiful place to be when the weather is sunny & warm. I walk along the canal to see the daily activities of paddle boating, school field trips, picnics & cook outs. If you're in a reflective mind set, the canal waters create a soothing reassurance.
