4 places left
Join us for an enjoyable walk along the east London canals and docks. Starting from the quirky and vibrant Mile End, we will walk alongside the eastern branch of Regent’s Canal, exploring graffiti, brick warehouses and industrial architecture interrupted with impressive views of Canary Wharf. Arriving at Limehouse Basin, the landscape quickly changes to sophisticated and elegant docks in a charming neighbourhood.
Shortly after we will arrive at The Prospect of Whitby, the oldest Docklands Pub dating back to 1520, for our first Pub break, to enjoy a drink and stunning riverside views. Proceeding through the historic Wapping canals and the Tobacco Dock, with plenty of photo opportunities, we’ll arrive at the Hermitage Moorings, St Katherine’s Docks, and finally the Tower of London.
We’ll end the walk at the beautiful Dickens Inn, where we can socialise with another drink or optionally some food.
Our end point is St Katherines Docks (10-min walk to Tower Hill, Circle & District lines)
Well behaved dogs are welcomed to come along to the walk. All dogs will need to be well socialized with other dogs and people.
What to bring
The weather in May can still be a bit mixed, so although we will be walking through built up areas, a couple of layers would be recommended, along with a rainproof coat.
We will be walking on footpaths and towpaths - so please wear comfortable footwear, but this does not require any specialist equipment.
Food & drink
We will be stopping at a pub roughly midway through the walk and again at the end of the walk.
