To begin we take a 15 minute cycle through the beautiful streets of Clerkenwell and Islington to join the lesser know part of The Regents Canal just south of Angel. Here we will discover the origins of the canal and how it shaped the city we know today. Heading east we will uncover it's industrial past, the peaceful present and view life on the water today: from family homes, cafés to floating bookshops making it their home. Along the way their will be an abundance of art, wildlife, parks, markets ,nature reserves and best of all...fresh air. By this point you may have forgotten your in London! We then branch off to The Hertford Union Canal past hidden sculptures and visit the enchanting Fish Island, London's newest creative hub. We then travel the full length of Victoria Park (the peoples park) and have a half hour break at Broadway and Nettle markets by London Fields where there is an abundance of food and refreshments on offer. Once refreshed we head home via backstreets stopping to visit Hackney City Farm.
Pleas note:  This tour is a little longer than our other tours so you need to be "semi-fit" to enjoy it. Plus, as we are by water some of the time you should be a confident cyclist.
