It's said that walking beside water is good for your well being so I would definitely recommend a walk beside the River Lea. The towpath is in very good condition but watch out for cyclists coming up behind you. There's plenty of lovely scenery to...More

River Lea at the Hertfordshire end is absolutely beautiful with plenty of good walks along the tow path. Lovely at every season, with different things to see. We have a narrow boat so it is also great for trips along the actual river.
