Boating & Cruises in East London

East London is located in the lower Thames valley. The major rivers of East London are the Thames that forms the southern boundary; the Lea which forms the boundary of Tower Hamlets/Hackney with Newham/Waltham Forest; the Roding which forms the boundary of Newham with Barking and Dagenham/Redbridge; and the Beam which forms the boundary of Barking and Dagenham with Havering. The marshes along the Thames which once stretched from Wapping to Rainham are almost completely gone.


There are lots of great places in London that will lend you a boat to float around in. Pedal across ponds, row down rivers or canoe along canals. Regal Boat Hire is responsible for the boating facilities in Victoria Park. The fleet of 40 boats includes row boats and pedalos.
