We can name at least one great way of paddling down a canal.


And apparently so can the adrenaline junkies at Secret Adventures, who’ve arranged a kayaking tour of London’s oldest canal ending at the water-side CRATE Brewery (who also make a mean pizza, as it happens). Here’s how it goes down…


Is pretty simple. You pitch up at Limehouse Canoe Shed at around 6pm-ish in your waterproofs, where the instructors will help you jump into your trusty vessel (even if you’re a total novice). Any valuables you don’t want to get wet will be stowed in waterproof barrels, or simply taken by van to the destination. You’ll then get paddling the 6km journey along the swan/houseboat-filled route to Hackney.

Upon arrival, you’ll head over to CRATE Brewery’s main bar, change into your non-wet clothes, and settle into your first drink of the evening. Your kayak will then be taken away, and you’ll strongly consider ordering one of those pizzas.

Because you can’t have your kayak and eat it.
