During the summer months, it’s easy to start feeling sweaty and suffocated in London. You might want to plan a day trip to the seaside for some light relief from the heat, but sometimes city responsibilities mean escaping Zone 6 just isn’t possible. If you need to swap your stuffy flat for cooler climes, but only have a few hours to spare, a boat trip might be just what you need.
Luckily London is full of rivers, lakes, ponds and canals to pedal across, row down or canoe around and loads of places to hire boats, too. Here’s our guide to the best boating spots in the city to help you cool down this weekend. Just try not to fall in!
