Public Canal Boat Trips from Little Venice
Lady A is a private hire boat only and so we don’t have time to offer trips to the general public but don’t worry – there are several companies specialising in Public Canal Boat Trips from Little Venice and Camden. This page was last updated on 8th April 2018.
London Waterbus Company run a summer timetable daily, 31st March until 30th September, with roughly an hourly service from both Little Venice and Camden Lock, 10am, 11am, 12.15pm, 1.45pm, 3pm & 4.15pm on Thursdays to Sundays. Monday to Wednesday is a reduced service leaving Camden at 10am, 12.15 and 3pm and Little Venice at 11am, 1.45 and 4.15pm. Please check for any updates at www.londonwaterbus.com for the latest information, but normally you can turn up and pay on the boat (card only, no cash) – no prior bookings unless for large groups. At peak season and if the weather is really nice there may be additional services to the above, especially at weekends. A reduced service will run in October and a further limited service also runs at weekends only through the winter.
Jasons Trip – daily departures from first weekend of April until the first weekend of November, from Little Venice at 10:30, 12:30 and 14:30 and from Camden at 11:15, 13:15 and 15:15. Online booking is possible at wwww.jasons.co.uk. During June, July and August an additional trip leaves Little Venice at 16:30, and Camden at 17:15 on Saturdays and Sundays only. Jasons Trip accept the London Pass sightseeing pass or cash only.
Jenny Wren – daily departures from Camden Lock from April until early November, usually at 12:30, 14:30 and 16:30. Check their website for full details. Occasional Sunday Lunch cruises too onboard the My Fair Lady.
Also check www.theelectricbarge.co.uk for availability of The Electric Barge for larger groups based at Paddington, and Walkers Quay, www.walkersquay.com for boats trips based at Camden. Both of these companies operate year round, subject to maintenance periods in the winter.
And of course our very own LADY A is available every day for private bookings for up to 12 people. A private cruise can work out not much more expensive than taking a seat on a public trip, so why not ask for a quotation?
