Overview

This walk is always close to water. It starts by taking you through the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, past the Aquatics Centre and the London Stadium, hosts to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. You then walk along an arm of the River Lea to reach the Lee Navigation at Old Ford Lock. Later, the Hertford Union Canal leads you to Victoria Park, with its lake and green open spaces. You join the towpath of the Regent's Canal going south to Limehouse Basin and then on to Canary Wharf via the Thames Path. Bring a drink and snack. The walk is mostly on paved surfaces and there are no stiles.
