Overview

Canal and River Cruises Ltd operate the Lady A, a 12 seater narrowboat on London's canals, based in the lovely laid-back area of Maida Vale known as Little Venice. We offer private tours for private parties of all sizes between 2 and 12 guests. A canal cruise is ideal for family celebrations, hen parties or just a day out with your friends. Our most popular cruise is 2 hours, slowly following the Regents Canal through Maida Vale and Regents Park and London Zoo before turning around at Camden Lock Market. We also specialise in custom made private cruises from two hours or more with an itinerary built just for you! Ask us for advice on where to go before and after your cruise to make a perfect day! A special rate is available for just one or two people. We are here to make your day special! Contact us by searching for Canal and River Cruises London in google as Trip Advisor has recently removed all contact details for this type of business. Not sure if this is permanent! Mike

A cruise of the river is a wonderful way to see the city and also can give you a wonderful history of the many bridges over the river. Each bridge has its own story and each bridge has its own beauty!

Had a great experience getting the river cruise from Greenwich to Westminster bridge. The guide was humorous and kept everyone amused while teaching us a lot and being on the water felt wonderful on a hot summers day

Went on a sunny day and enjoyed the cool breezes on the boat. Our young children enjoyed it too and it's free for under 4s. The spokesman who was guiding the boat tour was fantastic and you get to see alot!
