It’s no secret that I love East London. And my adoration doesn’t just involve writing about the breath-taking views. A little bit of country is good for the soul … and that’s what (surprisingly) you’ll be in the middle of if you visit Mudchute Park & Farm on the Isle of Dogs.
If you’re looking for something to do on a Sunday afternoon, like me last Sunday, get your wellies on head down to Mudchute - it is honestly a fantastic place to visit.

Hi there, Frank here.
Last week I was on the beach on the Isle of Dogs. This week I’m in Ropemaker’s Fields in Limehouse.
Ropemaker’s Fields has only been here since 1994. They made it because it was just wasteland before and the people from the Docklands Development Corporation decided that grass would be nicer. It is called Ropemaker’s Fields because in the old days it was where they made rope for marine anchors, rigging and mining.

Hi there, it's Frank... I'm back!
Last week I got properly stuck at home, but today I'm out and about again.
As you can see I'm on the beach today, but I'm not at Brighton or Southend... I'm on the Isle of Dogs.
