Directions

From Culpeper, continue northwards a short distance along Cloudesley Road and turn half left into Copenhagen Street. Cross Barnsbury Road (traffic lights), take the first left (Charlotte Terrace). Turn right into Carnegie Street and left into Muriel Street. Look for the ramp back onto the canal towing-path on the right. After about a kilometre, you will come to St Pancras Lock, shortly after passing the back of the Camley Street Natural Park on the other bank. After the lock, pass under a railway bridge and a road bridge and then carry your bike up some steps on the right. Emerging onto Camley Street, cross the road, turn right, and then ride over the canal bridge down the hill, under the railway, to the Camley Street Natural Park on the left.

If you are visiting this garden on Open Garden Squares Weekend, be careful to check the opening times.

Description

Camley Street Natural Park is a local nature reserve on the banks of the Regent's Canal in the heart of London's King's Cross area. Created from derelict land and opened in 1985, It was one of Britain's first nature reserves and has become internationally acclaimed. The park offers a landscape inspired by nature - a mosaic of meadow, marsh woodland and open water habitat. The garden is closed on Fridays.
