Canal Museum and walking tour of Kings Cross
Wednesday 20 June 2018

This tour is now sold out.

We meet this morning for coffee at the London Canal Museum, a former Victorian ice warehouse on the Regent’s Canal.  Our tour explains how ice was transported from Norway for sale in London and explores the history of London’s waterways and the craft and cargo that were carried.  We also see a narrowboat cabin and learn about the people who lived and worked on the canals, and the horses that pulled the boats.

In the afternoon we have a guided walk of the Kings Cross area. After 150 years of industrial use the area north of King's Cross and St. Pancras stations is being transformed into a vibrant new part of the city with homes, shops, offices, galleries, bars, restaurants, schools and even a university.

Cost: £10.00 per person.
