Enjoy a boat trip through Islington tunnel on The Regent's Canal, opened in 1820 and around three quarters of a mile in length. When it first opened, boats had to be pushed through by a process of "legging" where men lay on the boat and pushed against the walls with their legs. A guide from the museum offers you a commentary on the history of the tunnel as you cruise through it. All trips include free museum admission.
