Harlesden Summer Sessions

Monday and Thursday From 5pm

We have a new Summer Timetable at Harlesden Canalside; from Monday 25th April, beginners sessions will start at 5pm and then we will have experienced paddlers from 6:15pm.

We are meeting at the Container in the carpark (free at weekends, but a small change during weekdays) at Disraeli Road, NW10 7AE. We are next to Beit el Zaytoun Restaurant in Park Royal, which is just a few minutes walk from Harlesden Station. So very easy to get to. We highly recommend Beit el Zaytoun, and there is also the Grand Junction Arms just across the canal for some post paddling refreshments. The site is close to Harlesden Station.


This is a flat water site, with a straight section, which enables us to run Sprint training, it also a great site Marathon training, as the canal stretches from East London to Hayes. where it joins the mainline from Brentford to Birmingham.

Beginners are always welcome, we have all the kit you need, so please get in touch and start having fun: email: sprint@thesharks.org.uk, or call 07951 770241.

The Harlesden site is currently being developed in partnership with the Old Oak Common and Park Royal Development Corporation, and there are significant pans to make improvements during 2022, for more information call 07951 770241 or email: spirnt@thesharks.org.uk.

We have a WhatsApp Group to make messaging easier and to keep people informed, if you wish to have your number added to this group, please either email or text us on 07951 770241 or email: spirnt@thesharks.org.uk.
