This museum is situated on the banks of the Regent's Canal near Kings Cross. It is housed in an old warehouse that dates from the 1850s when it was built by the Italian Carlo Gatti. Gatti worked on the canal for much of his life and made a fortune importing ice for his ice cream business.
The museum tells the story of Gatti and other workers who lived and worked on the canals during the Victorian era. It is open every day except for Saturdays from 10am-4.30pm. Admission costs around £2.50 for adults.
