off road - quite busy and sections of the canal have too many cyclists that don't slow down - so I usually head into Victoria Park at that point and walk through there...

great route from Stratford to Walthamstow almost entirely off road with distinct sections that add interest - Hackney Marshes, the canalside, Walthamstow Marshes and heaps of blackberry picking opportunities in the summer and places to stop for picnic...

A great route, dodging rainclouds from the super-shiny world of Stratford and Westfield, through the still-very-neat Olympic park with Anish Kapoor's Orbit tower, over East London canals and touching on Fish Island....

For the next one and a half miles, the route is on mostly quiet residential streets, apart from short stretches or crossings of busier roads. The next half mile or so is along quiet residential streets and along the south edge of the Manor Park section of Wanstead Flats. At the east end of the footpath, the route cuts down to the very busy A118 Romford Road, for the last half mile to Ilford station....

The section of Well Street used is a main thoroughfare out of London so frequently very busy with traffic so I would suggest a detour to avoid it: travelling from Stratford - after Well Street Common and Church Crescent I would turn right into Terrace Road, left into Elsdale Street, left into Loddiges Road and across Mare Street into London Lane....

Best done in reverse so that you don't finish in the hubbub of Stratford/Westfield and so that you can refresh yourself at the Coppermill pub! It's nice to follow the natural Lea/Lee through Hackney marshes rather than the navigation....

The last little bit after Victoria Park to Bethnal Green is along a mix of quieter and busier roads, but the sections are quite short and it's quite quick to reach the end point....

You could make a detour through Museum Gardens and reach Old Ford Road from either Victoria Park Square or (via Sugar Loaf Walk) from Globe Road, but doing so won’t take you past the Museum of Childhood and, immediately after turning onto Old Ford Road, York Hall (see photo). Approach Road is the next turning on the left; this leads (past The Approach Tavern, see photo) to Bonner Gate (see photo) of Victoria Park. The southern path along Victoria Park takes you past a large boating lake (see photo) to the Pavilion Café and public toilets adjacent to it. There is a path directly to the canal at that point, or else you could continue on the path parallel to the canal along National Cycle Network route 1, which takes you through a car park to Cadogan Terrace opposite The Italian Job restaurant, where the towpath can be accessed on the right. Walking east on Bassett Lane takes you to the London Way path up to the London Stadium (see photo), and past the Olympic Bell on your left....
