Great route which uses the canal link between Kings Cross and Islington, very little traffic. Not as direct as the Pentonville Road but way nicer. Recommend....

A picturesque route avoiding busy roads, much of which is along the attractive Regents Canal towpath. Just as you finally leave/enter the canal path at Angle, its worth having a peer down the mile long canal tunnel (no towpath, so looking only)....

It's very snakey, which just is a bit annoying because I had to be constantly watching my phone to ensure I stayed on the route....

My one beef of the route is that looping down to Pentonville Road is unnecessary when the route could cut over on Duncan Street....

I'd generally agree with the other reviewers that it's a pretty standard London Slow Ways route, but I might be a bit more enthusiastic - I really enjoyed watching the city change gradually. It really did happen bit by bit, and that was really fun to observe. I was really pleasantly surprised by this route, and would definitely recommend it....

The only change I would have made is using Duncan Street near Angel, to not have to go past the really busy A501/City Road for a little bit. The nicest bit was the canal....

I wasn’t sure why it dropped down to City Road at the start, but I think the walk through Duncan Terrace Gardens is worth the diversion, it is a very special place....

Unfortunately Grays Inn is not accessible ‘out of hours’, and the entrance to the courtyards and gardens was locked. I’d say this route is for weekdays daytime only. I may put up a revised version, which would give an accessible all hours off-the-main-roads option....

You do have to pay attention getting onto the canal from Angel, I find, but once you're there it's easy autopilot walking with a lot of buddleia!...

Nice to see King Square Gardens and might as well detour through Fortune Street Park too, while you're there. Got to love London's pocket gardens - have a little sit if there's time....

This is certainly nicer than what I would usually have done (gone down City Road to Old Street). The area near Liverpool Street is still a massive building site, and it was noisy, even on a Saturday morning....

Lovely walking along the canal from King’s Cross, easy and straightforward exploring once you get off the canal, and lots of stuff in Angel on the other end! We were happy to walk through the Angel market near the route node. Fantastic walk....

The Kings X Granary Sq development was a spectacular start, the canal section was being well used but not crowded, although you do have to be alert to bikes, as always on towpaths. Drops you right into Angel via quiet streets, a very nice route....

Walk this route

This close to central London, there tend to be two kinds of walk - the tourist-friendly one with major landmarks, and the backwater. This is definitely the backwater type, as it's mostly on smaller roads - though ironically does take in a short section of the A1. I enjoyed the architectural contrast between the glass office buildings at Liverpool Street and the 1960s residential flats dotted over the central section....

Martin McGovern

Walk this route

I agree with the previous reviewer - very pleasant walk on a mix of residential streets and the canal, when then leads on into the new development north of King's Cross. Should be manageable for wheels - a couple of slopes going on and off the canal are the only significant inclines....

This route goes along the traffic filled main roads such as High Holborn. As previous reviewer says there are definitely much quieter and pleasanter routes. Hopefully someone with local knowledge will create an alternative route....
