London By Linda®

The only London museum related to inland waterways, London Canal Museum explores not only how canals came to be built but also teaches about the lives of the workers, the cargoes, horses and how canals work. Situated at King’s Cross, this unique waterways museum is housed in a former ice warehouse built around 1862 for Carlo Gatti, the famous ice cream maker, and features the history of the ice trade and ice cream as well as the canals. Consider adding a guided towpath walk to your visit via a free audio walking guide that starts from Camden Town and guides you to the museum.
