Throughout the 2012 Olympic Games, Time Out, in partnership with Relaxnews, provides a tip of the day for visitors to London: Don't miss the serene yet fascinating length of London's canal, which gives you a new perspective on many famous sites.

Slow the pace right down with a tranquil trip along Regent's Canal in a long boat. You'll start at the exclusive watery enclave of Little Venice and wend gracefully to Camden Lock, passing through London Zoo on the way (look out for the exotic birds and warthogs visible from the banks). At Camden, there's plenty of time for a root around the markets before returning on a later boat.
