Jason's Trip is the original Regent's Canal tour and has been operating since 1951. Jason is an authentic 108-year-old canal boat that was originally used as a cargo vessel on the canals before being fitted with a diesel engine and converted to passenger-carrying duties. The tour runs between Little Venice and Camden lock. It takes about forty-five minutes each way. During the trip from Little Venice to Camden, there is a live commentary from a trained guide who will tell you all about the canal's history from 1800 to the present day.


It's easy to reach Jason's Trip in London, by train. Simply hop on a train to London Paddington station - then it's a short 10 min walk across from Paddington, or one-stop away at Warwick Avenue tube station.
