I visited Canalway Cavalcade In May 2013 in the afternoon with friends but ended up staying until it closed.I had a brilliant time there.There was lots to see on the day/evening with a boaters’ gathering, a pageant of boats, trade shows and stalls, bands, kids’ activities, competitions, Morris Dancers, a real ale bar, a wide variety of snacks and food......

Just along the canal from Paddington. Tranquil; except for the buzz and hum of Westway a few hundred yards away. On a fine day the light has a magnificent luminous quality and plenty of people around to animate the scene.

The guide was a lovely gentleman, who took us past some truly lovely parts of London - fab houses! Then onto the canal, passing Richard Branson's house boat - now... More

If you have ever stood on Praed Street outside Paddington main train station and seen its busy London activity, you would find it hard to believe that a few minutes walk away is a tree lined canal walk of peaceful tranquility. Little Venice a must for a walk or take a canal boat trip to camden. (You can also get... More

The first place I visited on my recent trip to London. It was a bright, sunny Sunday afternoon and was surprised to find the place quiet. I enjoyed walking beside canal and just enjoying the serenity of the whole place. I then took a Waterbus to Camden Market which in contrast was busy and crowded.

I walked from behind Paddington station along the towpath beside the canal, turning right towards Regent's Park on a sunny October day. At one point the canal goes through a tunnel and you have to go up in the street, but it is easy to find your way down again on the other side. In the end I walked all... More

It's a great place to go if you're looking for a nice walk. I always enjoy walking along the canals and the scenery is nice. Nothing beats a nice walk on a sunny afternoon in London.

I've had to write this, as I've recently read a review complaining that Little Venice is nothing like the real Venice. I suppose it's obvious to us living fairly close to London, but may not be obvious to people from around the world. Little Venice is located at the junction of the Regents Canal and the Paddington Branch of the... More
