Regent's Canal

The 8.6 mile Regent's Canal stretches from Little Venice in the west to Docklands in the east, and whether you're looking for a peaceful stroll or a bit more hustle and bustle, you'll find it along the tow path. Both the vibrant Broadway Market and Victoria Park are on the banks of the canal, as are numerous floating businesses, including a narrowboat vintage boutique and a bookshop on a barge.

Victoria Park

Victoria Park is one of London's oldest and best-loved public parks. It's a vast open space with ponds, a pavilion, tennis courts, cafes and of course its iconic Chinese pagoda. In the summer months, it's great for picnics or for hiring a pedalo to take out on to the boating lake, or you can attend one of the many music festivals and events that take place throughout the year. And of course, it's ideal to ride your skateboard through!

Shoreditch High Street

Shoreditch High Street is home to many of East London's best bars and pubs – from flamboyant cocktail lounges to grungy dive bars, the area has it all. With plenty of independent boutiques as well as big name brands at the Boxpark pop-up mall, it's also a great shopping destination, while those looking for somewhere to eat need look no further than the numerous Vietnamese restaurants on Kingsland Road, known locally as the Pho Mile.

East London


Rising property prices in Shoreditch forced East London's creatives north to Dalston a few years ago, transforming the area into one of London's best places to go out at night. You can grab some food at one of the many authentic Turkish restaurants, before hitting the bars on Kingsland Road High Street, such as Birthdays and Dalston Superstore. Dalston is also a great place to catch new indie bands, jazz or experimental music, at The Shacklewell Arms, Vortex Jazz Club and Café Oto respectively.
