England, London Guide (B): What to Do in Little Venice London

What to Do in Little Venice London
What to do in Little Venice London is a good question, but the first question for most people is probably what IS Little Venice London? It took me years of living in England before I’d ever heard of Little Venice, and when I finally did I couldn’t believe that this unique area existed and me, a travel blogger, London lover, and frequenter of the city countless times, had never happened upon it! I suppose that is partly the magic of London: It is so vast and fascinating, that you can spend hours – a lifetime – exploring it and you’ll still happen upon new places to fall in love with.

When my parents and I booked our stay in London before my graduation, we made sure to do it in the Little Venice/Maida Vale area – it was a good location for us as it is close to Paddington station and ideal for both transport from the airport/trains to Plymouth, and… exploring Little Venice!

So What Is Little Venice?

Little Venice is a scenic and calm canal area near (slightly North of) Paddington, but not quite in the centre of London. It was named by the poet Robert Browning, as “Little Venice” was his pet name for the area that he lived in, overlooking the canals (most good things can be related back to poets ;P). Actual Little Venice is at the intersection of Grand Union and Regent’s canals, but any time spent exploring Little Venice should also be spent walking up each canal respectively, extending into the Maida Vale neighborhood.
