London’s waterways: Paddington & the Grand Union Canal

 Registration is closed for this event

This event is now full, but you can join the waiting list and we'll let you know if a place becomes available.


We're pleased to announce the next field trip in our major 2019 project, Making the Most of London's Waterways.

We'll visit Paddington, where large-scale, mixed-use development is rapidly changing this part of the Grand Union Canal. New offices are attracting major global companies, while more and more people are enjoying the area's floating market, towpaths, and canalside social spaces.

Join us to learn how stakeholders and partnerships are managing different uses around the water and using the canal to activate Paddington as a central London destination.

Date: Tuesday, 21 May, 2:45 to 5 pm
Place: Paddington Basin

Speakers include:

  • Kay Buxton, Executive Director, Paddington Partnership
  • Andrew Scrivener, Chief Executive, European Land
  • Emily Prideaux, Head of Leasing, Derwent London
  • Mike Meadows, Planning Director, British Land
  • And a speaker from Canal & Rivers Trust

The field trip will include time for Q&A/discussion. Attendees are also invited to join us for post-tour networking drinks.
