About: Lea Valley Park covers around 26 miles, including Hackney, bordering Stratford’s Olympic Village, and going all the way up to Essex and Hertfordshire. Therefore there are many different places to alight, depending on what you choose to do; for instance the trail by the canal between Homerton and Upper Edmonton is sure to provide you with a quiet, undisturbed walk. Fans of ice skating can head to the Lea Valley Ice Centre,and those who like horse riding can benefit from the riding centre, both in Leyton. There are other sporting facilities like golf courses, football pitches and athletics tracks, and heritage sites like Waltham Abbey Gardens, a pretty picnic spot with a rose garden, but most of all it’s the park’s lush greenery and wildlife, maintained by various conservation groups that are its selling point. It’s little wonder it is referred to as the “green lung” of East London.

A walk through the Lea Valley waterways gives you a great look at old London. Industrial yet green, this walk from Limehouse upwards is one of the best in East London, especially for fans of wildlife.

Places to spend a rainy day
This indoor ice skating rink in Leyton is open all year round. You can turn up to skate or join a class – there’s both group and individual tuition for all ages. There are also nearly 800 seats if you’d rather sit back and watch the action. The centre is home to the local hockey team, and participants on ITV’s Dancing On Ice often train here.
