We have been lucky enough to be granted another series of trips out on the Angel Boats this September. All aboard for more fun on the waterways – see London from a very different angle, meet new people and learn about the boat from Captain John!

Last week our group had a lovely time making their way at a leisurely pace along the Regent’s Canal from Angel to Camden, stopping off for lunch before heading home.

Tomorrow we have another group heading off to Little Venice, if you would like to join us in September give us a call!

Call Activities Manager Ellie Shipman on 0207 281 6018 to BOOK YOUR PLACE!

We were met by Helen, Camley Street’s Education Officer, who gave us an introduction (after an essential cup of tea!)¬†and insight into the history of the park and then lead us on a lovely tour around the reserve.

Nestled between the churning regeneration works in King’s Cross and the Regents Canal¬†Camley Street Nature Park is an oasis of wild greenery – proudly home to some rare bird and plant species.

We wandered at a leisurley pace around several ponds surrounded by fluffy bullrushes and whistling reeds, whilst ducks paddled on the surface and the tweets of the birds miraculoulsy drowned out the industrial cranes in the background.

It was a lovely afternoon and felt like a little holiday out of the city. Join us next time for your escape!

Call Ellie on 0207 281 6018.
