We turn into the Hertford Union Canal continuing alongside Vicky Park passing our favourite garden centre, Growing Concerns, until we reach the junction with the Lee Navigation. We can see the Olympic Park ahead as we turn towards Hackney Wick. Here we find the world famous canalside salmon smokery R Forman& Son www.formans.co.uk and restaurant.
Another great canalside venue is The White Building, a centre for art, technology and sustainability, www.thewhitebuilding.org.uk Here you will also find Crate Brewery & Pizza (Definitely the BEST pizzas outside Italy!) and a little farther along, the Counter Café www.counterproductive.co.uk – in our opinion the best café in London – their bacon & avocado sarnies are heavenly & Eggs Benedict is sublime!
Just opposite you’ll find The Copperbox Building and Olympic Park, with a range of year round events and activities. www.queenelizabetholympicpark.co.uk
