The never ending heat-wave has us craving the water, and we’re queuing up to try new Scandi company GoBoat that hires out electric boats by the hour. Pick up your vessel at Merchant Square in Paddington and be your own captain as you explore the pretty waterways up Regents Canal through Little Venice to Camden Lock. Each boat fits up to eight people – dogs and children welcome – and can be booked for 1-6 hours. Pack a picnic and take to the water. No qualifications required.
