We start our canal-side walk at Islington, the point where the Grand Union Canal emerges from a tunnel and gives you the chance to take a fascinating journey east to newly emerging cultural districts around the Olympic Park site. A number of pubs offer great beer and food, so after pausing for lunch, walk the length of the canal to Mile End, passing a range of new award-winning architectural developments. Here is the frontier of the government's plans to develop East London and the ultimate homage to this plan is the Olympic Stadium in Stratford. London held the Summer Games in 2012 and built a number of venues in Stratford, including the 80,000-capacity Olympic Stadium. The cost of the games' infrastructure amounted to more than £9 billion. This walk takes you past the main Olympic Park at Stratford and the athletes' village as well.Show more

This walk takes you to some of London’s more hidden treasures, slightly off the beaten path. Discover the bohemian Camden Town with its markets, a jungle of quirky fashion and international cuisine. Stroll through one of London’s most iconic green spaces, Regent’s Park. Be sure not to miss the street artists at Covent Garden, dip into the Thames area to remember the heart of the city and step into the hidden world of the Regent’s Canal, an oasis of calm and once London’s best kept secret.
