Joyful and relaxing visit to Little Venice with my uncle. The gardens, grounds are looked after by staffs that are very friendly. The visit was more enjoyable with the sun shining through the trees and over the canal making the chilly day worth the walk from Paddington. Gratitude should be given to the ground men for their excellent, dedicated work... More

It is a beautiful place to visit, considering it will not rain. You trully get the feeling of being in Venice. You should sit for coffee in one of the boats and enjoy the view.

Recently walked from our Hotel in Hyde Park all the way to Camden Lock/market. This beautifully interesting walk ,but as it is fairly long you could just visit Little Venice either by walking or taking a tube (nearest tube stop Warwick Avenue) It really is a hidden gem in London. Very peaceful & the perfect spot for a walk &... More

Little Venice is one of the most beautiful places in London. The next time you are in London (if not already) give it a go. There are a lot of floating cafes and the walk on the canal is very nice. Fancy a coffee on a sunny day? This is the perfect spot. Walk from Paddington along the canal Westbound... More

I got bus to Paddington and walked behind train station to find I'd discovered the canal. Walking westward the scenery was transformed from shiny modern glass buildings into beautiful Cream-coloured gorgeous Georgian architecture culminating into Little Venice. Such an attractive area with so much to see and do. I ended up on board the Waterside Cafe - a floating luncheon/coffee... More

Stroll leisurely along the canal pathways and then hop into one of the many riverside boat restaurants or the Canal Cafe Theatre which is a classic pub very family friendly!

Seems that almost everything is closed during the winter and it's pretty much deserted- the boats all docked and nobody inside and hardly any food outlets around. Walked for a good 45 minutes before deciding to head back to the tube to go elsewhere. On the upside it was quiet and the neighborhood was a great change of scenery.

What a hidden little haven right in the heart of London by Paddington station. Having been to London many many times and often arriving at Paddington station, I had never really explored the surrounding area, and Little Venice is one of the marvellous places right there. We really enjoyed strolling along the canalside and spending time in the gardens.

We wanted to visit Little Venice so decided on a New Years Day stroll. This place is best visited in summer and I'm sure it's a great place to stroll and stop off to eat. New Year's Day meant it was quiet and it was all a bit depressing.

A very calm and peaceful place right in the heart of London. Little Venice lies right near the Paddingon station. As soon as you are outside you'll see the directions and map for a place (despite you don't need any) and also can read some historic info about this channels. For me personally it looks more like little Holland than... More
