Passed through Little Venice on our canal boat, firstly on the run down through Camden and then on the way back. Linking the long stretch of suburban Grand Union canal with the more interesting inner London parts, Little Venice is the linking piece before the Regents Canal. Here is a miscellany of houseboats, floating restaurants (including a magnificent Chinese place),... More

It's a lovely spot to go to in order to get away from the crazy city centre. It's very quiet and on a nice day it's great to sit at a cafe and have a cuppa by the canal, especially the floating cafe that's in an old barge.

As part of a personal challenge to do 40 things before I hit 40 next May, my 6-year old son and I visited Little Venice for lunch on a sunny afternoon. We weren't disappointed by this beautiful area of London. Stepping out of Warwick Avenue tube station and taking the 5-mins walk to Little Venice, we passed many beautiful houses,... More

Had heard about this from a few people, finally decided to go. It was a tranquil place in the centre of London. Was a bit too quiet for my liking. When I arrived, I'd just missed a boat tour so I walked around the basin. There was a variety of boats moored there and that was it really. A few... More

Its good to see some waterways in a busy city, but the boats and moorings are looking a bit tired now and could certainly do with tidying up. Many are overgrown and most could do with a lick of paint. At least it's fairly quiet by the canal.

Enjoy a panel boat ride and watch the ticket taker with her vintage change machine, get off at the London zoo, enjoy the tigers and rain forest exhibit. The canal boat tour goes by dozens of intrepid Londoners who make their homes on this web of canals, all built to carry cargo for London factories and pulled by horses.

Although it's a little garden nestled in hidden part from the city we find it very worth the visit. A place to just relax and enjoy the soothing environment with beautiful garden design. Going through the path beside the canal provides a view of boats lining up the sides to imitate the real one in Italy but it is the... More
