Paul Money’s Canal Boat

Paul Money has a canal boat. He takes passengers and shows them the canal and its attractions.

They go from Little Venice down to Hampstead Road Lock. The journey down to Hampstead Road Lock is a distance of about two and a half miles, so that’s five miles in total. And the return journey takes one and a half hours.

The journey goes through the tunnel under Maida Hill, which is about 250 metres long. By canal standards it’s quite short, it’s one of the shorter tunnels on the system. Some tunnels go as much as three miles in length.

The fastest that the boat travels is about four and three quarter miles an hour, but the speed limit is actually four miles an hour. The journey makes its way around the north-west edge of Regent’s Park through the London Zoo. The passengers are always attracted by the animals and birds living here.

In the high summer they make four trips a day. The return fare for an adult is four pounds fifty, or a single fare three pounds fifty. Then there are reductions for children and pensioners.

Complete the sentences.
