London Diary – Winter Wander with Walk London 2018!

Feb 3, 2018

Cold and rainy, far less than an ideal day for Winter Wander. Getting up late and missing the group nearly put a stop to it. But we braved it and completed the mission on our own, walking along Regent Canal from Islington to Hackney Wick. Not the prettiest section of the canal. Still quite interesting to see and surely stretched our legs well. Favorite was Victoria Park and a nice break at The Crown right by the park.

Another wander coming up tomorrow opposite side of town. Hoping for better weather.

Weather was much improved today. Winter Wander #2, Grand Union Canal from Boston Manor to Greenford, which was a historically important canal linking London and Birmingham. The best part was the last stop, Osterley House, beautiful house and park. Alas we were too late to do a proper visit. We have to go back someday.
