Where the Grand Union and Regent’s canals meet, you will find Little Venice.

This picturesque neighbourhood, with its beautiful canals and waterways, is home to quirky waterside cafes, cosy pubs and charming restaurants.

Although within the City of London, Little Venice is an oasis of peace and tranquillity.

When in London we often visit Little Venice because there are plenty of things to do in this charming area.

You can embark on a canal trip by narrowboat from Little Venice to Camden Lock Market in around 45 minutes.

Or enjoy a show at the Puppet Theatre Barge, a real theatre on a canal boat. Kids will love it!


Or better yet, go for a walk!

Explore the atmospheric Regent’s Canal, which starts from Little Venice and ends in the Docklands, passing London Zoo and Camden Town.

A short 2-mile linear walk ends at buzzing Camden. The double lock at the heart of Camden is known as Camden Lock but is actually Hampstead Road Lock.

Its market is world-famous! So, make sure to stop for a snack at Camden Market.
