London's Hidden Waterway - A Day in the Life of Regent's Canal
Charter this Canal Boat for your event/party for up to 10 people, for £200 per hour with minimum booking of 3 hours. Galatée is captained by her owner, Simon. Galatée is a traditional widebeam narrow-boat with large bow and stern decks and ample seating. It is our home, bright and airy, and stunningly decorated with a spacious living area. There is a table for 8 (or buffet 10) and all modern conveniences. In winter we have a solid fuel stove and the boat is always warm. Explore the history and contemporary reality of living, working and playing on Regent’s Canal, a peaceful haven steeped in historical and environmental interest that passes through some of the capital’s trendiest neighbourhoods. Sample a piece of what life is like on the canal, see how narrow-boats work, experience going through locks, witness old and modern London from a different perspective. We can serve food and alcohol; Simon is an excellent chef and can prepare anything from a buffet to a cream tea or a multi-course meal with wine. Examples of trip: - Visit the Canal Museum for preliminary insights. Sail west to the new vibrant Granary Square plaza, formerly a busy shipping port, with old canal buildings now given an outstanding 21st century makeover. Chug on through locks, past gasholders, and moor up at world famous Camden Market, a nerve centre of artisan creativity. - Continue on towards Little Venice, London zoo and Regent's Park. - Sail east through the Islington tunnel (almost 900m long, built in 1818) to Broadway market and Victoria Park. We look forward to welcoming you on board Galatée!
