We braved the crowds clinging to the bridge by the Ice Wharf, crossed over and began the walk to Little Venice. The crowds soon thinned out and we took a nice leisurely 1.5-2 hours stroll along the embankment. With changing views we walked the perimeter of London Zoo and spotted birds in the Snowdon Aviary (not sure how I thought about that) and, on the other bank, hogs sunning themselves. There are a couple of houseboat communities along the way, quite bohemian and lovely. The walk also took us around the back gardens of the white mansions and the mosque which you normally only see from the front on the Outer Circle of Regents Park. Coming up "above ground", found a great bistro Cafe Laville which is built on a bridge over the canal - you can sit outside and watch the longboats sail up and from Little Venice below. 10 mins after we left the bistro, we reached Little Venice. In truth not that much to see when you get there, but its a pleasant enough spot to end the walk. We then got a Riverbus back to Camden. 50 mins journey £8 per head. A lovely day exploring part of London I didn't know.
