I booked with Hidden Depths from Granary Square for a team away day and it was a perfect activity. The crew were fantastic and knowledgable and gave us a choice of direction, towards Camden or through the Islington tunnel to City Lock, and we chose the latter. The route is so pretty and the tunnel is really cool. It was really good going through the lock as well. The boat was perfect for our group of 12. We were allowed to take our own food and drink on board and they had speakers and phone connectors on board so we could make and play our own playlists. Although we were lucky and chose a dry and sunny(ish) day it was still a but nippy so the crew put the covers on the boat and it made it really cosy. It was decorated so beautifully with bunting along the sides, and artificial flowers threaded across the ceiling. This really was the perfect activity for our team and something entirely different. It suited everyone and was a great way of connecting as a group in a fun and relaxed environment. I really can't recommend it enough. Thank you everyone!

I did the 1-hour trip from Coal Drops Yard to City Road Lock last year when I was on my solo trip. What a great way to travel. I would love to do a holiday on the canals one day. The trip was well organised and professionally run with informative commentary. I'm so glad I found this. Thank you.
