The London Waterbus Company is a private company that provides scenic cruises down the historic Regent's Canal. They have a fleet of four narrow canal boats, three of which have a historic Ship Certificate.
You can enjoy one way or return trips on the London Waterbus. Stops are available along the way, including Little Venice and the London Zoo. The boats feature large opening windows which are nice on warm sunny days.
The company also offers two different day trips on Saturdays during the summer months. You can explore the industrial history and architecture along London's lesser known waterways and you can enjoy seeing many famous London landmarks from a different perspective. The day trips feature an insightful commentary along the way. The Limehouse Trip takes you along the canals of north and east London and takes from 9:30am until 6:pm including a stop for lunch. The Black Horse at Greenford Trip takes you west through Regent's Park and beyond. It finishes around 5:30pm and includes a stop for lunch. These day trips must be booked in advance.
For regular Waterbus Service no booking is required. You can just pay on the boat by cash, debit card or major credit card.
