“Could be better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

I totally agree with Nimitta's comments, I couldn't find anything in Little Venice, the walk along the river was lovely, a nice little boat cafe when you get off the waterbus but really nothing else there,best part was the views from Camden to Little Venice and back.

“Overhyped, make it part of the journey, and not your destination.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

This is no more than a small stretch of water were three waterways meet. Quite a let down when you actually get there, and in fact some of the stretches of canals themselves leading to/from here as far more interesting and enjoyable than this place. Regents canal is quite something indeed for example, especially in summer. So please do give it a go, but don't believe the hype about Little Venice and you won't be too let down when you get there. Make it part of the journey, and not your destination.

“Little Venice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

When you walk in the Paddington Area, much too late on the vacation I admit, it is very nice and especially the café and you really feel you are somewhat in Italy and in Venice with the house boats and the water gondola/water taxi/water bus going to the London Zoo.

A great place to visit lots to do and eat. Not been back here for years but was glad it was still as good as i remembered it. A nice walk along the canel or a good canel boat ride. walk along to Camden lock or London Zoo to make more of a day of it.
