Tower Hamlets

Tower Hamlets benefits from over 120 parks and green spaces – including Victoria Park and Mile End Park – and numerous paths along waterways such as the Thames, Regent’s Canal and the Limehouse Cut. These offer fantastic opportunities for walking, running and cycling – take a look at our Tower Bridge to Canary Wharf and Victoria Park to the Olympic Park routes below.

The borough also plays host to a wide number of sporting opportunities ranging from swimming to fencing. Take a look at some of the sporting options under the “12 Hour Challenge Sports” tab to see just some of the many opportunities near you.
