Tarporley Special Events

Camden Canals & Narrowboat Association is involved in some very special events with Tarporley.

Usually held the last weekend of October [It will be on Saturday 30th & Sunday 31st in 2015].  Organised by and departing from the London Canal Museum - Tarporley is one of 3 narrowboats involved.  

It is impossible, but our Halloween event gets bigger and more fantastic every year - we took over 400 witches and indescribable monsters through Islington Tunnel in 2014!  Even more surprisingly they all came out the other end!

Advance booking essential - to find out more and book tickets please go to LCM bookings 

Please note - tickets sell out fast and usually go on sale early September.

N.B.  This is a family event - it is not suitable for adults without children, or for children under 16 without responsible adults accompanying.

Summer short Boat Trips - through Islington Tunnel

The London Canal Museum provides combined admission to the Museum with a trip through the half-mile long Tunnel in Tarporley on some summer Sundays - see here for details

Tarporley was in the Diamond Jubilee Pageant . . .

Angel Festival

copyright: everydaylife.style

Tarporley attends the Angel Festival on the first Sunday in September each year.  She is usually moored on the towpath side, between City Road lock and the bridge where Wharf Road, N1 crosses the Regent's Canal. There's always plenty to see and do. Why not come down to visit the boat and meet some of our volunteers?

Kings Place Special Events

We also run short 'taster' trips through Islington tunnel and back from time to time during certain Kings Place special family events - individual tickets can be obtained through Kings Place Box Office
