Now used for houseboats and picturesque walks, canals were once a hotbed of industry and transport across Britain. The London Canal Museum charts the history of London's inland waterways - in a Victorian ice well, explore how ice cream was first brought to the capital. The museum is open from 10am to 4.30pm - afterwards, take a stroll by the Regent's Canal nearby. (Nearest station: King's Cross St Pancras)
