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

I stumbled upon this place after a walk in Regent Park. It is very beautiful and peaceful. Little Venice connects with a longer canal that leads though to Regent Park. There are canal boat tours that depart from this area.

Try and look for different places to visit whilst in the capital. Little Venice is an area of canal with restaurants and great places to walk. It dos not feel like you are in London , it is so quiet and tranquil alongside the waters edge.

A beautiful walk along the canal, which makes you envious of all the boat-residents. There are plenty of restaurants on the banks and more if you venture in. Great way to spend a morning / afternoon. Could also be part of a day out to Regent park or the London zoo.

A couple of ponds and canals do not a Venice make. This small area of London is a nice oasis in the middle of the city where you can take a boat ride and hear some historical commentary about what you are seeing. We thought it would somehow be more that what it was.

I have been to this place, and there is nothing special about it. I recommend cleaning the water in the canal and add some coffee shops it will a great place.

It's a lovely walk round the canals and a stop off for a nice cup of tea somewhere or to jump on the river bus, which we did to Camden market in another review. I was amused by the bubbles. I don't know whether it's to oxygenate the water or like in Jaws 2 to keep the Sharks away from... More
