Flat walk along London's canals

A leisurely way to spend a Sunday afternoon in London with a 5 mile walk along the canals of the East End, combined with a visit to a museum (Free Admission) to learn about the history of the Docklands, and finishing off at Canary Wharf with a visit to Crossrail Place Roof Garden. There is also the option of dinner and seeing the Comedy Store Players in the evening.

Please be aware this is not a circular walk. We shall start at Bromley-by-Bow tube station and finish at Canary Wharf.

The Museum of London Docklands stands in an early nineteenth-century sugar warehouse, and tells the story of London's East End riversides, including the city's involvement with slavery. Admission is FREE. There is a cafe on the entrance level serving drinks, sandwiches and cakes.Museum of London Docklands | Free museum in London

The Crossrail Roof Garden is situated on top of the Crossrail station in Canary Wharf. Some of the plant species in the garden are indigenous to countries visited during the 19th Century by trading ships that used the docks in the area.  Crossrail Place Roof Garden - Canary Wharf

After the walk ends, there is the option of heading into London's West End to see the Comedy Store Players in their hilarious Sunday evening improvisation show at the Comedy Store, 1A Oxendon Street, SW1Y 4EE.
