So, you think you know London...
This paddling trip along East London’s oldest waterways leads you past warehouses, houseboats and an 18th-century tidal mill before arriving at the Crate Brewery in Hackney Wick.
The tour group, Secret Adventures, promises “unusual and off-grid adventures”, and the itinerary duly provides you with an unsanitised experience in the arteries of east London’s postindustrial belly: with warehouses, waterfowl, warts and all. Greg Dickinson
