A Duck's Best Friend

The only London museum of inland waterways

Location: 12/13, New Wharf Road, N1 9RT

Description: Every wondered about water borne transport in the smoke... well look no further than the 'London Canal Museum'.

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

Even peer down into the unique heritage of a huge Victorian ice well used to store ice imported from Norway and brought by ship and canal boat to be stored.

The museum is an attraction 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.

This is the only London museum of inland waterways and is situated at King's Cross, an accessible central London location.

Only in London!
