You might think of London's canals as a dumping ground for shopping trollies, domestic waste and the odd addicts needle here and there. Or that some parts of London's canal network run through quiet, un-lit, pedestrians paths in the middle of some of East London's notorious council estates, that you would probably want to avoid at night. Good points actually! However that aside, London's canal network can be perfect for a weekend stroll, cycle, dog walk, romantic date and of course a great blogging backdrop! So if you are a visitor to London or like myself, someone who should see more of our great city, then you should spend some weekend time along these waterways.
