Hollow Ponds

Got the urge to pretend you’re a character in 'Wind in the Willows'? There’s no better spot to mess around in a boat than at the secluded Hollow Pond in Snaresbrook. Take a picnic, hire a five-seater rowing boat for around a tenner and breathe in some decent air for a change.

What an incredibly enchanting rural area of London. A brilliant place to properly unwind on the edge of the lake, so many little hidden alcoves everyone can have their private beach. Boat hire is £10 for 30mins and £15 for an hour. We opted for 30 but could easily have passed an hour. So worth it, a stylish way to travel, even better with glass of bubbles. There’s also a greasy spoon hut if you need a triple decker burger!
