Video: Secrets Of London's Canals – Limehouse To Kingsland

If there's something that might just be more exciting than tube trains, it's canals — they've been around longer than the railways, and are tied up in the capital's industrial revolution. Did you know that the first canal in London was actually constructed back in the 18th century — in 1770, to be exact?

In this new series, we're walking all the canal towpaths in London, looking at everything that you can see along the way.

Part two: City Road To Camden
