London’s Secret Waterway – King’s Cross to the Zoo
Modern Architecture and Victorian Engineering
On this walk you will start at the impressive new developments around King’s Cross and St Pancras. You will see magnificent monuments to Victorian enterprise and engineering in the beautifully restored and revived Granary Building now the home to London’s thriving University of the Arts. You will pass quiet stretches of canal side including the lovely urban oasis of Camley Street Nature Park. See how this area is undergoing a massive transformation from declining transport and warehousing hub to a dynamic urban quarter attracting major tech firms like Google. The canal passes Camden Lock with its vibrant alternative scene and thriving market and the walk finishes at London Zoo where the canal enters Regent’s Park. From here it is just a short distance to Camden Town tube.
