Ahoy, Mate! Hot Tugging in London's Canals!
If you ever find yourself looking to do something just a bit out of the ordinary, look no farther than a Hot Tub ride down the canals of London!
Definitely one of the most unusual activities you will ever do in London, this is a super FUN way to spend a a morning, afternoon or evening with your honey, or with your friends! (also a great idea for a Hen party!)
We first heard about this from our daughter, who Hot Tugged with a date last summer. She raved about how fun it was, so we signed up for an outing with our friends Malcolm and Una in in Autumn, at the Islington/Old Street location. Now I'm getting excited again, because we have a Hot Tug booked in June, at the Canary Wharf Location!
How does it work? Well, basically you are in a round, heated floating hot tub, and you get to drive it around the canals at a whopping speed of 5mph. The great folks at "Hot Tug London" furnish you with Captains hats, bathrobes and towels, and after a safety orientation and instructions by the staff, you are off! The whole experience is 90 marvelous minutes, the perfect amount of time!
You are welcome to bring champagne on board, and there seems nothing better than to sip champagne, sit back in your own personal hot tub and watch the swans drift by!
Joggers and people out for their morning strolls waved and cheered us on from the shore. And you really can't get lost in the canals, but if you do, just ask one of the many canal boat dwellers to point you in the right direction!
We had initially hoped to do this activity on a sunny afternoon, after the experience, I must say that EVERY of the day is perfect! Our daughter hot tugged in the evening, and we boated at 10am. Both amazing, and we've booked our next adventure for morning!
And the peace and quiet.... perfect.
Just say AAAHHHHHHH!!!!!
