I think, the cruise through the channel is a fine for everyone, however this attraction doesn't offer so much as I originally thought, except for those of all boats that are moored along the channel. Each one of them is an awesome. Anyway, is it the attraction, so definitely you have to try it ..

A afternoon visit to Little Venice with my uncle and sat on a bench over looking the canal and enjoying the sunny shine and the peacefulness of this wonderful park. Truly a place to visit and relax.

My sister and I visited Little Venice as I love Italy and she loves long boats. We were not disappointed. It was a short 13 minute walk from our hotel and we had london passses that covered a trip down the canal. We arrived early and it was breathtaking. The little island and the ducks. We viewed many long boats... More

It’s all about the canal, which creates a very different look and feel to London’s traditional neighborhoods. The tree-lined streets that frame the several miles of canal are filled with homes—modest to mansions, cafes, eateries, food shops and pubs. In addition to the large houseboat community, the canal is busy with private boaters, kayakers and scheduled waterbus services. Personally, I... More

Discovered this area of London while there on holiday last week. Loved it and wish we spent more time exploring the area. It was nice and quiet, very different from the typical tourist areas. Great to walk along the canal and also take a cruise up the canal.

This is a great way to escape from the hustle and bustle of London - by walking along the canal from Camden to Little Venice. The route takes you along the canal through Regent's Park/London Zoo - the wild dogs and bird cages line the walk for a short way. The canal tow path is paved and very safe, easy... More

This place being called Little Venice is a joke. Nothing like Venice. This was a huge waste of time. Not a very safe walk from the Paddington Station. Only saving grace was lunch at Cafe Laville.

I went to little Venice assuming I would be able to walk down the canal side and enjoy looking at the many barges and boats moored there.For the most part the canalside was locked off as private so had to negotiate the pavements full of trees pushing up the pavement with its roots. They were so uneven no chance of... More

I found a couple of years ago that London had canals and a section of the city called Little Venice. So of course I had to go there. This is an upscale section of the city a lot of it built along the man made waterway. There are great shops, loads of pubs and restaurants and walking (or a boat... More
