Who knew there were canals in North London? These were dug in the 1800s and turned the area into "Little Venice". You can take a boat trip from here to Camden Market. Well... read more

This part of London is just 5 minutes walk from the canal alongside Paddington Station. You can walk via Rembrandt Park which is a pleasant place to sit and has a basic free public toilet. It is worth walking around some of the roads here to look at the amazing houses. There are also a few nice pubs around the... More

Went there for a couple of hours last Saturday, had a nice walk around Little Venice' - seeing the house boats and barges was interesting as we walked, stopped at a house boat that had been converted into a cafe, good value as well as great fun........would like to go there again in the summer months.

We were on visit in summer and it was pretty warm. The boattour from here to the Camden Locks was very nice. You get a new look of London far off from traffic and overloaded streets! You get alot of information about the canals and its history.

An interesting, peaceful and accessible place to visit, in spite of the sound of traffic from the A40, built in the late 1960s. Paddington Basin and Paddington station are within easy walking distance; or Warwick avenue tube station is close by and there is a Grade 11 Cab Shelter beside the Black Taxi rank, one of the oldest in the...

I heard about this place from a student nearby Lords Stadium; continued walking from there and across one of the street I could witness the beautiful water canal-Little Venice. It's full of small boats with rooms & a few only for transits. The canal banks were beautifully preserved and a traveller it goes for a surprise that something like this... More

I was in London less than 24 hrs and chose to roam off the beaten path. While staying nearby I walked to Little Venice and toured Rembrandt Gardens. Wow!!! I couldn't have been more happier with my afternoon. The permanent resident boats lining the waterway were charming indeed. I ate lunch at a cafe on a bridge overlooking Little Venice... More

Having stumbled on the little Venice in London was very intrigued to find out a little more about this place.....well was blown away by how beautiful the canals and surrounding gardens were .....and a walk from there to Camden Town was amazing.....did not think that London could still take my breath away.
