Spend the summer on the canal

18 April, 2019

Don’t forget to visit the London Canal Museum

• I WAS delighted to read Denise Walker’s letter about regular boat trips through the Islington tunnel during the summer, (‘Bus’ service runs through canal tunnel, April 12).

On completion the tunnel was surveyed by Thomas Telford, who praised it highly. It is so well engineered that from the King’s Cross end you can see from the towpath daylight at the other end.

At King’s Cross you can also visit the London Canal Museum which I would certainly recommend.
