Quaint little, peaceful area to sit, watch the water and daydream. It was Sunday evening, so nothing was open. Most people were either strolling along the banks or sitting on benches looking out on the water.

Trendy but less authentic than the Avon Canal in Bath. Neat little spot. Few buses lines or tubes stations get there unless you walk or taxi. Locals are making sure that this area doesn’t get too crowded. Good for them !

If you are standing in or near Paddington, do yourself a favor and walk through Paddington Station and enter a world that's more like Belgium or Amsterdam than it is Venice, frankly, but it is lovely and unexpected. There are houseboats moored along the canals...More

Dating back to the 1800's this little patch of gardens, restaurant and boats are along a canal. It is one of the interesting places to visit in London

Totally free- it’s just a name of a region because of its canals. Have fun checking it all out.
