Feng Shang Princess - 16 October 2015

Feng Shang Princess - 16 October 2015
Feng Shang Princess Floating Chinese Restaurant, Southern Star Cumberland Basin, Prince Albert Road, London NW1. (Access from Prince Albert Road).

The restaurant is the dominant feature of a small part of the Regent's Canal with a fascinating history. The Cumberland Arm (or Cumberland Market Branch) was a 1-kilometre (0.6 mi) long stretch of canal that connected Cumberland Basin to the Regent's Canal ( which passes through the present site of the car park of London Zoo). The Cumberland Turn junction with the Regent's Canal is still visible with the short stub-end of the arm remaining housing the restaurant. (Part of this text is edited from a Wikipedia entry).
