I walked this route from Camden to Kings Cross. I really enjoyed this walk.

I started first at Camden Market, a bit off-route, and then met up with the route at the start point. It follows quiet streets through residential neighbourhoods before connecting up with the canal. Canal walking is always pleasant!

Then, off the canal, the route follows somewhat an unexpected series of streets in behind King’s Cross and St Pancras stations, but it worked perfectly and I had no problem following it as plotted. The route was perfectly safe and pleasant!.

I walked from King's Cross to Camden. This was very easy to follow, generally pleasant and once leaving the canal, used lovely quiet streets. I especially appreciated that the underpass under the railway (just past St Pancras) was clean and well-lit - this made it feel very safe.

A good way to make the short walk from Camden to Kings Cross. Good use of the canal which is well used by the locals.

I have always enjoyed walking around this are of London, the area to the north of Kings Cross station is great for cafes restaurants and bars and more and more retail options keep moving into the area.
The Regents Canal flows runs through this slow way which is a lovely piece of London to roam, you can also connect through overground to Angel and continue on the toe path all the way to Stratford or Paddington.

Short and sweet - Camkin one connects Kings Cross station to Camden Town efficiently along Regent's Canal. It notably does not include Camley Park or St. Pancras gardens, but it would be easy to peel off and explore these green areas. The Canal has a ramp for access only on the Kings Cross side, so don't fully commit to the route if you don't want to navigate 20 or so stairs. And be careful- the canal walkway is very slippery when wet.
