Both Ends (8) : Regent's Canal

The Regent's Canal stretches across North London connecting to the Grand Union at Little Venice near Paddington. Then it passes through the likes of Camden, Kings Cross, Islington and Shoreditch to connect to the Thames at Limehouse Basin.
Little Venice
The canal was built to help regenerate great swathes of London North of the Thames and provide a way to bypass the busy Thames through London to reach the dockyards in the East. Now its probably the best way to walk, jog or cycle across the capital!
