The Hoxton are jumping ship and setting up Hox on The Locks for two weeks on Regents Canal to mark the 1st birthday of The Hoxton, Amsterdam. The floating boat will be an extension of the hotel; a well-designed, compact space with everything you need for a super nights stay. What’s more, included in each overnight stay on board is a privateHoxtown event which definitely beats watching the TV, although the Hox cabin does have a pretty big projector. The activities will change daily, with everything from paddleboard yoga and canoeing, to cocktail masterclasses and BBQ workshops planned.Read More
Our local neighbourhood has such a rich heritage but the star has got to be the Regent’s Canal itself. Finished in 1820, famous architect John Nash had a hand in its construction. Linking up the Thames with the Grand Union canal it was the main artery ensuring goods arriving by sea could be transported through London and up to Birmingham. Along the way you’ll pass Angel, King’s Cross, Camden and Little Venice. You’ll see rope marks carved into cornerstones through decades of use, curved Victorian brickwork bridges and many original industrial warehouses.
