How about having a pleasant stroll around the leafy Little Venice?

We recommend starting at the far end of Maida Avenue (where it meets Edgware Road), because there's a nice little cafe that overhangs the canal. It's actually situated right on top of the bridge itself, and if you manage to bag a table outside then you can look all the way down the waterway.

After that take a stroll down one side of the canal peering into all the pretty little houseboats, until you come to the bridge at Warwick Avenue. Pass under the bridge into the Grand Union Canal, where the three different waterways meet, and follow it round the righthand side. As you approach the ornate blue bridge you will see a houseboat cafe on the other side of the water (the Waterside Cafe). Cross over and have another cup of tea.

Craig has spent a whole morning walking around this area, and you might like to read his musings about Little Venice before you go. Feel free to ask him a question about Little Venice. You can also ask questions on the forum, or write your own review.

If you'd like to continue your day on the waterway, then how about catching a boat to Camden Lock? There's a company called Jason's Trip which operate a beautifully painted canal boat between April and November. You can find their landing stage by that blue bridge. Craig has written a review of Jason's Canal Trip as well. If you're feeling a bit more energetic, then you can choose to walk up Regent's Canal instead, all the way to Camden (although it's not the prettiest of walks in the middle -- it's very nice around Little Venice, London Zoo and Camden, but is rather scary in the middle).

Admin – “Jason's Trip (the most popular boat trip) only runs between April and November, so it's closed at the moment.There is also a waterbus which runs throughout the winter, but it only operates at the weekends — .londonwaterbus.com”
