Park circumference is about 2.5 miles and you only have to cross the road twice. To get here I run down along the canal which connects with the park. You can choose to run on a trail alongside the paved path or run the path. Very flat trail though.

Recently I participated in an event here which involved walking two circuits around the park. Had it not been for that I would never have known such a lovely place exists. There appears something for everyone on Victoria Park and great to see it so well used by the community and visitors. We visited on a Sunday and because we... More

Was announced as being an "alternative Xmas market", which was not really true. It is small, stuffed with fancy fair things and 2 tents with "local artists arts" and at the end another few small venues. The mulled wine was all over the place as the hot dogs. Entrance is free if you show your bag to the security man..... More

nothing beats a walk to Victoria park on a Sunday. It is a very chilled and unassuming park, right in the heart of East London. when it was first opened it was known as the 'lungs of East London'. There is something for everyone, from children, to dog lovers and fitness fanatics and the park is always buzzing with activities.... More
