Summer in #London #SchoolHolidays - Boating in Regent's Park @theroyalparks

Daily Constitutional Editor Adam writes…

Every year on The Daily Constitutional, as the high season for visitors to London hots up, I spend August sharing a few archive posts. This year I'm reposting recommendations from our If You Do One Other Thing In London slot (a regular feature of our Saturday London Spy posts) and updated posts from the Best Museums In London series, in which the London Walks guides shared their best London museum tips. 

If theres' a London Walks tour starting or ending nearby I'll add the details at the bottom of each post and I hope you find them helpful over the course of the summer.

Keep in touch - I'm not going into hiding! - I'll be posting throughout August and, of course, I'll see many of you "out there" on London Walks tours. All of our regular features – and some new ones, too – will return in September.

A.S-G London, August 2016

“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing - absolutely nothing - half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.”

Thus spake Ratty in The Wind in the Willows. And you can take his advice at Regent's Park where the boating lake is open daily from 10:00 am - 6:00 pm through to September and offers rowing boats and adult pedalos for hire.

Here's London Walks' very own Karen doing just that while filming her London Next Stop series for Canadian TV…

Adult hire for 60 minutes costs £10.00 £7 for kids – there's an early bird special available before noon of £7 for adults and £5.50 for kids.  

For further information contact the Boathouse on +44 (0)207 724 4069.

The Little Venice tour is very handy for a visit to Regent's Park – full info on that walk here:

A London Walk costs £10 – £8 concession. 

Accompanied kids under 15 go FREE.

To join a London Walk, simply meet your guide at the designated tube station at the appointed time. Details of all London Walks can be found at
