The best way to view this tiny slice of London is by boat - and if you are lucky enough to have a canal barge the better. Although there are nearby pleasure cruises by barge that also include ZSL London as part of their deals. Idyllic, tranquil, colourful and modern are just some of the words I'd use to describe...

We visited on a Saturday in July. Got the bus to Warwick Avenue - there is a tube station there too. You can wander around the canal basin where the 3 canals meet. It's not huge but it was a lovely sunny day and very pleasant. We had a coffee from a canal barge coffee shop. You can sit inside,... More

Walked from our Hotel to Little Venice and had a lovely trip along the Canal to Camden on Jason's Narrow Boat Trip. The lady on board gave a lovely commentary as we went along, very informative and interesting. I would definitely recommend.

What a disappointment! this place has absolutely nothing to do with Venice. It is basically a long canal of green water with houseboats...it reminds me of Amsterdam if I had to compare it with another place. But the houses overlooking the canal are fairly modern, so it lacks also an historical appeal.

Little Venice is close to the Warwick Avenue Tube Station and clearly sign-posted from there. It was interesting to see the boats tied up there - we didn't see any moving boats whilst we spent a couple of hours there. We wanted to walk along the canal to Regents Park but the direction signs for this section were confusing and... More

Visited here with friends, we started off with a drink in a pub nearby where we sat and watched the boats go by then we set off for a lovely stroll along the canal, the only downside for us was there were so many cyclists and you had to keep getting out the way, I would say if you were... More

Small canal that is tucked away. Has some cafes on the sides and small boats. Canal itself looked a bit dirty and it's way too small even to be called Little Venice!

Little Venice is a pool where two or three canals meet, allowing barges to turn and pass each other. It is surrounded by walkways and some gardens. If you are in the area and particularly if the weather is pleasant it can be a very nice stroll with some decent views. It seemed smaller in real life than it seems... More
