A two-acre haven right in the heart of King’s Cross

Camley Street Natural Park is an urban nature reserve – a two acre haven in the middle of one of the most densely populated parts of London. Situated on the banks of Regent’s Canal, the park is a place for both people and wildlife.

Run by the London Wildlife Trust, the park was created from an old Coal Yard in 1984. The reserve provides a home for birds, butterflies, bats and a wide variety of plant life. Habitats include wetlands, woodland and meadow. It’s great for a day out with the kids, or just a bit of peace and quiet from the bustle of London.

The new Somers Town Bridge now links the park with the Coal Drops Yard, the shopping neighbourhood across the canal.

See Regent’s Canal from a different angle

If you’re down by the canal, you’ll notice there’s a new addition to the landscape at Camley Street Natural Park. Viewpoint is a floating platform that looks to bring architecture and nature closer together. This island hideaway in miniature is a peaceful spot to pause and take in views of the canal and the park. It takes the environment of the park out into the water, and helps people discover the nature and wildlife of the canal. You’ll catch glimpses of birds such as swans and moorhens, and maybe even a kingfisher if you’re lucky.
