The Plan

Enjoy a tranquil paddle up the historic Grand Union Canal to the picturesque Little Venice, where you will stop off for a cake, coffee and a break, before paddling back to the centre.

The start point is in Ladbroke Grove, minutes from the world famous Portobello Street Market and vibrant Notting Hill – a haven for lovers of fashion, food, books, music and antiques. The area is also surrounded by bars, pubs and restaurants, making it the perfect place for those visiting London, or those looking for a day out with a unique twist.

We run this trip in highly stable one person kayaks, and no experience is required. Our expert guides will help you master the basics of boat control during your journey. All specialist equipment is provided.

Duration: Approximately 2.5 hours, including briefing time and kitting out.
