... Probably better in spring / summer. I went in November, not many people around, not much to do, but anyway, is a nice area and something different to the normal London even though is just a few tube stations from central London.

I have just enjoyed a guided walk round Little Venice, which showed me an area I had barely visited in the past. It is a quirky beautiful area of peace yet so close to Westway and Paddington. Who would have known that this was a busy area of activity in the Industrial Revolution? The walk was full of information, history... More

Little Venice is a small lovely neighbourhood in Maida Vale. Definitely highly recommended for a beautiful stroll on a nice day in London. Lovely houses, waterfront buildings along the canal, tree lined streets with restaurants and cafes make this area quite pleasing to explore.

We have been trying to go here for a few years now but this was the first time we had decent weather (hottest halloween ever thank you ) Got the tube to Warwick and got on the boat to get to Camden Market. The scenery is a pleasure to look at it. This little oasis in the city is a... More

Walked along the Regents Canal from Camden Locks to Little Venice. Lovely area of the City, with loads of Narrowboats moored alongside the canal. Easily reached from Paddington Railway Station along the Canal.

We parked here whilst attending the nearby visa centre at the Battleship Building and it provides a nice environment for a walk by the canals and around the basin. Also the area around Warwick Ave is worth an explore or a walk up to Maida Vale is pleasant. As a free 'attraction' you can take what you want from it,... More

Walking beside London's rivers and canals is one of the greatest pleasures available in the city. Little Venice is very beautifully preserved with several points of interest, such as a cafe on a boat and a puppet theatre on a boat. Highly recommended, and can easily be combined with Camden Town and/or Regent's Park/Primrose Hill/London Zoo.

Great quirky place to go for an early morning stroll! Love the narrow boats and quiet park that you can sit and have a little early winter picnic, very sweet!

Just north of Paddington lies Little Venice. It is a picturesque area where the Grand Union and Regent’s Canals meet. There is also a number of waterside cafes, pubs and eateries here from which to choose. I took a boat trip heading downstream past Maida Vale and further down to Camden Lock. I would happily sit by the water and... More
