Hackney Wick

We took a long walk along the canal from Clapton through Hackney Wick all the way to Broadway Market. A great part of London, it feels so cut off from the city when actually the canal is never far from the tube. The canal passes right through the shadows of the Olympic Stadium and there were some apartments and cafes that will have a priceless view when the open ceremony fireworks light the skies next year.

The canals are still heavily used so we saw many narrow-boats navigating the locks. There was also a lot of graffiti to keep us entertained along the way.
