Actually we lied. Today we want you to get yourselves, quite literally, onto the beaten track. Onto a path to be specific. See what we did there? This is a relatively undiscovered path linking Mile End Park to Hackney Wick, perfect for a lazy Sunday stroll along Regent’s Canal. If you’re looking to get outdoors, for things to do in London with the kids or simply escape the tourist trail, this is the one for you.
There are plenty of things to see and do, starting by the Globe Tavern Gardens, with views of the Art and Ecologic Pavilion and Queen Mary’s University. On Regent’s Canal it’s possible to see swans, ducks and other birds on the way to Victoria park. Once in Victoria Park, there is no better way to fuel up than having a lunch with a coffee (or beer, it’s 5 o’clock somewhere we’re sure) in the Pavilion Café. After this, you’d probably like rent a boat ride along the lake and discover the Chinese pagoda installed in the center of this lake. Are we wrong? Of course not.
Now, we can continue our route by going through the park, taking a memorable pic of the Burdett-Coutts Drinking Fountain. At the end of the park, there is a bridge linking with Hackney Wick, where you’ll find art adorning the walls and of course, fantastic pubs and bars to finish our walk. Enjoy a beer or two, such a Nº90 Bar and Kitchen, because it’s the law (okay fine it’s not, but it should be) that all walks in the Great British Outdoors end in the pub. And in case you still weren't sure, here's a handy photo guide; it'lll be like having your own London tour guide. Sort of.
