The Islington Tunnel carries the Regent's Canal Arm of the Grand Union Canal for 960 yards (878 m) underneath the Angel area of Islington, in London.
Islington Tunnel opened in 1818 and was built by the engineer James Morgan.
Travel by boat through Islington tunnel on the Regent's Canal and around three quarters of a mile in length. When it first opened boats had to be pushed through by a process of “legging” where men lay on the boat and pushed against the walls with their legs. Our trips are more easily achieved on board one of London's community narrowboats. We use the historic converted working narrowboat Tarporley, for most of these boat trips.
There are 12 places on each trip and early advance booking is very highly reccommended. You can check availability of places online at any time of the day or night. Bookings are open for all trips in 2013. Bookings are not refundable.
Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
