Almost 140,000 children cannot swim the statutory 25 metres when they leave primary school. That’s a concerning one-in-four and, when you consider more than 400 people accidentally drown in the UK every year (one every 20 hours), the need for education and increased safety awareness in and around water is vital.

Here’s our (responsible) guide to the city of more than 100 islands, 400 bridges and, of course, lots of canals.
