Little Venice

Suddenly we seem to have gone straight from Winter to Summer, missing out on Spring altogether. This brings everyone out eager to ‘stretch’ their legs. Where better to go for a London stroll than along the Regents Canal.

North of Paddington is the tranquil spot known as Little Venice. From here you can take a trip on a barge to Camden or better still walk alongside the canal, passing the numerous picturesque narrow boats (many owned by London’s growing French population) on to Maida Vale, Regents Park and finally arriving at Camden.

All this can be achieved from the tow path of the canal with only a short road side detour due to the tunnel at Maida Vale.


Just a few of the many barges, double moored, along the canal.

On reaching Regents Park the canal takes on the role of a moat. Separating Londoners from whoever lives in such palatial and opulent houses as these.
