The Paddington Basin marks the end of the Grand Union Canal in central London and has undergone substantial renovation in recent years. Lovely walks combine with shops and cafes to make this an area well worth seeking out. Hire a boat complete with a picnic table to enjoy a chilled meal on the water.
Make sure you see the two incredible bridges located in the Paddington Basin, including the Rolling bridge which unfurls every Friday to span across the water. A recent addition is the striking floating park, a public green space to walk around upon the water.
