This relatively short walk takes you along the Regent’s Canal from bustling Islington to quirky and trendy Hackney Wick. You will pass moored barges and trendy cafes. The walk will stop off en route at trendy Broadway Market (toilet break) then on to Victoria Park, a lovely green space with wide avenues of trees and a welcome break at the Pavilion Cafe for 30 minutes. Then on to Hackney Wick where you will have the option to depart via the Olympic Village and Stratford or take the London Overground or perhaps try one of Hackney Wicks’ fashionable waterside cafes.


Refreshments and WC stop at the Pavilion Cafe in Victoria Park.

Please consider the weather forecast and the type of walk you are planning to join and wear appropriate footwear and clothing. We recommend that you bring a drink as there may not always be opportunities to purchase refreshments.

Advice Note:

The canal path is very narrow and uneven. It is not recommended for wheelchair users; and pushchair users may find it a challenge at times.
