Housed in a genuine castle on Regent’s Canal, the Pirate Castle organises a range of activities, both on and off the water. Kids from any background in London can hop onto the Pirate Castle canoes, kayaks and canal boats, and have a great time. The organisation offers free (or subsidised) projects to ensure that everyone can benefit from the Pirate Castle’s unique approach to training and adventure. Each activity is designed to “improve health and wellbeing, nurture life and social skills, and bring people together through active participation – regardless of their ability or personal circumstances.”

Excellent youth club for kids in the Camden area. They've been teaching boating skills on the canal here for 40 years! As a kid you can go down and learn how to sail kayaks, coracles, rowing boats, canoes, rescue boats and narrowboats, and as an adult you can volunteer and do the same...

The building is particularly good as it does actually look like a castle. more

A youth club i once attended although it has vastly improved since thne but they teach kids about the canal aswell as how to survive and boat on the canal, the Pirate castle looks like a castle but you would never think that they would teach boating skills as i thought the didnt but it is a fun and safe way for kids to learn and it gets them off the streets so i recommend it more
