London Canal Museum

Here at Boutique London Lets we have always been fascinated by London's canals and we have discovered this unique museum: the London Canal Museum.

At the London Canal Museum you can see inside a narrowboat cabin, learn about the history of London's canals, about the cargoes carried, the people who lived and worked on the waterways, and the horses that pulled their boats.

This unique waterways museum is housed in a former ice warehouse built in about 1862-3 for Carlo Gatti, the famous ice cream maker, and features the history of the ice trade and ice cream as well as the canals.

London Canal Museum tells the fascinating story of London's canals and this video takes a documentary-style look at what the museum, and the canals, have on offer, and at some of their history. 

It is the only London museum of inland waterways and is situated at King's Cross, an accessible central location. It is suitable for adults and children and it is fully accessible to all visitors.
