Off the beaten track places in London   Europe

Started Apr-26 by Feisty Old Broad Shorty (TOILETHEA1); 147 views.

Here are some less known places to visit in London

Canal Museum

The London Canal Museum is located inside an old ice-house that was used to store ice imported from Norway in the 19th century.

The Museum here tells the history of the London canals and the people and goods that used to travel along these now little-used waterways.

The outside terrace of the museum also gives guests a great view of the modern-day canal and the old cranes that used to load up boats with shipments of Guinness on this site.

 Canal Boat Ride

From the Canal Museum, consider taking a canal boat ride!

The canals of North London are walked and enjoyed by Londoners as it crosses through areas such as Camden.

But the boat tours themselves are a little-known treat to both locals and visitors alike.

The boat rides here are part tour, part lazy journey and we recommend a journey through Regent’s Park on the Regent’s Canal toward Paddington.  

Museum of Brands, Packaging, and Advertising

This is a truly off-beat museum.

Tucked down a tiny mews street that you’d never find on your own, this museum is focused on the history of branding, advertising, and packaging.

From centuries ago to the adverts and posters that surround us today, this is a truly interesting journey through the history of advertising and packaging.
