Experience London in a totally unique way as you kayak along the Thames after dark.

Secret Adventures, the off-the-grid adventurers, have a number of epic experiences for keen explorers — think husky sledging in Sweden and wild camping in Scotland. But, bringing the excitement a little closer to home, Secret Adventures are very fond of London’s waterways. Canoe along London’s oldest canal, paddle board in Paddington, or float through central London on a kayak, admiring the city’s best riverside landmarks, including Tower Bridge and the Shard.

You’ll start at Limehouse Basin, pass under Tower Bridge and gawp at the Tower of London, all before disembarking to clamber up a fire escape and enjoy a tasty dinner and a drink from a riverside pub.

The experience costs £89, but that includes the dinner, a drink and all the equipment (including waterproof jackets and over-trousers). You will be accompanied by a professional guide, so don’t worry if you’re a bit of a noob. The whole trip will take around 4 ½ hours, including briefing time, kitting out and dinner. Book here or explore other Secret Adventures here.
