Took a canal trip here from London Zoo which was lovely. Not much at little Venice but a nice cafe barge and peaceful walk towards Paddington Station.

This is a great, if not well known, location for spring or cooling summer stroll alongside tree lined canals, with beautiful and eccentrically painted long houseboats, lovely homes, and few tourists – all within 10 minute walk to / from Paddington train and Tube stations....More

Not so much Venice, but still has a life of its own. Lovely place for a walk. Still kicking myself that I didn't have a coffee on one of the boats.

This is a beautiful and lovely place for a nice walk about. That being said if your time is limited in London there is so much to do that this could be skipped. If you are in the area by all means take the time...More

Little Venice is a charming area around Paddington Basin. There Are at least two operators running canal boats from here to Camden.

Really nice area with a relaxed vibe. You can go on a bosat ride or just walk around the canals and enjoy the view, feed the swans etc.

We enjoyed a lovely stroll along the canal of London's 'Little Venice' - a hidden gem tucked away from the more touristy areas. Lots of character-filled houseboats to look at.

What a glorious place, right in the middle of the city too! Caught a water taxi from the zoo and beautifully peaceful. My only regret was not going back as far as Camden Lock. So close to Paddington too.

The Little Venice area is a very attractive spot to spend some outdoor time in the city. It adjacent to Regent's Park and near the London Zoo and it is a tranquil spot to enjoy the water and the outdoors.
