Another visit to beautiful Venice. Stayed in Hotel San Zaccaria, The Hotel faced the Grand canal. Our room was up the side alley with a beautiful church opposite, we were lucky no rain because we had to go outside to the main hotel for breakfast.
There was a very good choice for breakfast, staff all friendly and helpful
Small bedroom, nice bathroom with decent shower.
Room had all the typical drapes and matching bed cover, very comfortable and clean.

Great place, gorgeous in the sun, lovely atmosphere and feels very safe everywhere. Lots of lovely pubs, bars and cafes, well worth visiting if I’m london and fancy a stroll away from central

OK, so there's a Little Tokyo in LA, a Little Saigon in San Francisco, a Little Paris in both Brooklyn and London, and yes, there's Little Italy in NYC...but apparently the name of this quaint neighborhood is relatively new as there is no long line of Venetians who moved here. Two canals converge into a basin, and a boating community was born. I only found out about it when I saw it ranked #7 on the 101 Things to Do in London in Time Out London.

It was an easy ride to the Warwick Avenue tube station and then a quick stroll to leafy Rembrandt Gardens and the basin where long boats and gondolas were clustered. It was frankly too hot for us to consider a tourist boat ride, but we had a lovely breakfast at Clifton Nurseries nearby and leisurely walked along Regent's Canal to Regent's Park. The passing boats made for a unique sight in this charming, undertouristed part of London.

Fun route for a walk. We were heading from Portobello market to Hyde Park, and we’re able to follow the canal round for most it. It felt quite urban nearer the Portobello market end and got prettier as we got to The Paddington end. A great stroll to see all the house barges, with a few nice cafe boats.

My husband and walked our dog from Paddington Station along the Grand Union Canal for about an hour or so - we had intended to walk to Camden but went the wrong way - doh! It didn't matter though - we had a lovely walk and as if happens it was Bank Holiday Monday in August and the canal route went along the side of the Notting Hill carnival so we got to see and hear some of that which was really fun. It also means we have another walk still to do from Paddington to Camden another time. It is just lovely seeing all the comings and goings on the canal and all the beautiful canal boats - really recommended a stroll here.

Went here for an evening walk from Paddington station.
It is a lovely quiet area with a small nimber of restaurants and bars and possible boat tours. If You are looking for a peaceful part of London to visit that looks nice, this is one of the olaces to visit.

Went for a trip with the friends and Anj was an exceptional tour guide delivering the best experience ever around Little Venice in London! He was very charismatic and very good at explaining areas residing London. His humour and warm friendly nature was the highlight of my trip! Would highly recommend the boat trip from Camden to Little Venice!

Thank you Anj!!

Nice little walk along the canal. Got of the tube at Warwick and walked along the canal back to Paddington station. There are a few cafe’s and boat tours. Overall it’s worth the hour

A great place to walk around and spend 1-2 hours exploring the area and the riverside , seeing the houseboats. Each one is unique and there are some lovely cafes on the river. We tried to take a river boat tour but it goes all the way to Camden and there were no shorter trip options. Walk a bit further to the Beatles’ Abbey Rd studio and take a photo on the crosswalk !

Some restaurants in newer area and food trucks which looked good . Canal seemed a little dirty and unsavory characters around in evening. Man sleeping i. Tree startled us.
