Blog Extra (or… Simplly Messing About Near Boats)

A summer evening down by the canal. Here’s Roger

“Why not cross a bridge to see a different style of life?

The Millenium Bridge is designed to look like parkland, and links two halves of the Mile End park. We use it to reach Mile End Lock on the Regents Canal. As well as parkland on the way to Limehouse, there’s Dr. Barnardo’s Ragged School Museum.

At Limehouse, although sailing ships from Newcastle no longer unload here, the Basin is full of boats. There is a real mixture of narrowboats, dutch barges, and seagoing cruisers. And there are plans for a passenger boat service from Limehouse Basin, for the Olympics.

Besides Dickensian pubs, we have first-rate views along the Thames to several famous landmarks.”

The Regent’s Canal - Mile End to Limehouse Walk meets at Mile End tube station on Tuesday (8th June) at 6.30 p.m.
