Regents Canal

The canal can be ridden from the east side of the Islington tunnel, beginning at Noel Road. You can visit the shops of Islington here, or wait until you get to Broadway Market, which also provides access to London Fields. In between these two shopping areas, you can also visit the Geffrye Museum, the museum of historical English Interiors, just north of the canal on Kingsland Road.

A little further east, just next to Victoria Park, the canal path splits. Heading south along the Regent’s Canal takes you on to Mile End Park, Queen Mary College, and the Ragged School Museum, previously Dr. Barnado’s largest school for poor children.
