It is called little Venice thanks to the poet Robert Browwning who lived in this area but the label is quite a misnomer -- this is the confluence of just two canals: the Regent's and the Grand Union. However, even if it does not resemble Venice it is a charming neighbourhood to explore -- the architecture ranges from Georgian, Victorian... More

we walked down from Camden to Little Venice. While it was a nice stroll, it was a bit disappointing in the end. You only see the riverboats in the beginning, the resident areas are all closed off and you have to go around them. Arriving in Little Venice, there were only a few tour boats, and the one coffee boat... More

We visited Little Venice after having read so much about it,and we were stunned by how beautiful it is. It actally doesn't feel like you are in London, but in a different city in the world, because of the small houseboats, the canal and all the pretty trees. We went with the canal boat to Camden Lock, a nice tour,... More

Take a boat from little venice on a Sunday to Camden lock and you will enjoy the experience. We had a one way with lunch from the street stalls at the market. It is delightful to see this part of London from another perspective and some grand houses and gardens along the way. We caught a double decker back and... More

I often bring tourists here, at any time of the year but particularly in the summer. The best way is to walk along the Canal from Camden, through London Zoo. Magical. Bring some food and rink with you and enjoy the tranquil atmosphere. Highly recommended!

Me and a friend were walking close by to this area and wanted to take pictures for our photography project when we suddenly came upon this amazing place! It is a stunning little park, the huge pond is beautiful and has a nice little island in the middle which has amazing trees to see! Definitely a must see!

On a warm day, what could be more pleasant than a trip on a canal boat from Maida Vale to Camden Market? Jason's Canal Boat trip gave us lots of interesting information too.

If you want to chill out for a while, do enjoy time to meander along the canal banks in Little Venice, and check out Rembrandt Gardens (with public toilets), the bridges, the barges and boats, the stand up paddle boarders, the geese, the ducks....plenty to just enjoy. Grab a coffee from the Cafe boat, or enjoy a pub meal at... More

A bit of nature in the middle of London! It was great to walk along the channel from Paddington station until Camden town. If you fancy something different, away from tourists, this is a great choice!

Was taking a walk around the area, lovely place with a canal which link to Camden and boats parked at the side or passing by along the canal.
