We left Paddington Basin, which gives a very good, quiet and safe-feeling base for exploring the city and moorings are for 7 days, giving plenty of time to see the sights.
Brownings Pool looking towards Regents Canal
The Regent's Canal was built to link the Grand Junction Canal's Paddington Arm, which opened in 1801, with the Thames at Limehouse.
As you head towards Maida Vale Tunnel there are lots of residential moorings along both sides of the canal making the well known sight of London's Little Venice.Closer to the tunnel and those blue skies and sunshine look encouraging but it is still very cold and there is ice on the water.
Very soon come the Mansion houses, very imposing homes looking down on the canal.
A number of basins were built along the route, one of them is Battlebridge basin where the London Canal Museum is now sited.
The Pirate Castle is a youth and community project providing lots of water based activities for budding pirates.
Pirate Castle, Camden
And then there's Camden locks, running alongside the famous market.
I don't seem to have any more photos of the rest of the canal, at least not from this journey. Here's a favourite from last year and one which is on our calendar for this month.
