If you are on a holiday in London, you just cannot leave out the fun of boating in London’s boating lakes. Staying at the Montcalm City Hotel will give you the perfect base for visiting the various Royal Parks and the other parks and gardens that will afford the opportunities to enjoy boating in the lakes of these parks. If you find that the day is sunny, just go to the park and take to the water. There are many parks in London but the following three parks will give you maximum enjoyment and fun.
The Victoria Park received a £12 million regeneration of its boating lakes ahead of the Olympics in 2012 and for the first time in 30 years, the pedalos and row boats returned to its various lakes. Boating in its lakes is now the best way to explore this wonderful park. You can now do boating every day till late autumn and row past the fountains up to the deer enclosure.
The Serpentine Boating Lake in Hyde Park is one of the most central locations in London and staying at The Montcalm London City At The Brewery Hotel, you can simply walk down to it for a great and entertaining day of boating. A lot of Olympic 2012 events took place at this lake including the marathon, triathlon and the swimming. You can hire boats and pedalos between Easter and the end of October.
The Boating Lake at Regent’s Park is a large expanse of water on the Outer Circle of the park, which is one of the most beautiful Royal Parks in London. The lake offers boat and pedalo hire every day from April to September. Boating in the lake is extremely enjoyable as you can have spectacular views of the colourful trees, lawns and beautiful terraced houses. The park also presents a lot of wildlife such as ducks, herons and swans. The park also has a separate boating lake for kids which is only open on weekends, public and school holidays.
The parks and the lakes in them provide an ideal place for entertainment and for a quiet retreat in the midst of the hustle and bustle of central London.
