lovelondonscenes – 98. Regent’s Canal from Little Venice to Camden Lock

On Saturday I went to see British Sea Power at the Roundhouse. Beforehand, I had a stroll along the Regent’s Canal,from Little Venice, just north of Paddington, to Camden Lock. It’s a lovely bit of hidden London. Soon after Little Venice you have to come off the canal for a bit, and wander round the back streets; but you get back at Lissom Grove and it’s all by the water after that. with a route round the top of Regent’s Park and London Zoo. The Aviary prominent. All very beautiful until you approach Camden and it gets a bit scuzzy. That’s Camden, basically. Where young tourists come to do things they aren’t allowed to do in their own countries, like swigging beer from a bottle along the promenade, or blazing out the punk or dance music. Innocuous stuff, really. In London, it’s no big deal. We absorb and move on.

Some photos.
