The name 'Little Venice' is thought to have been given to this scenic spot, where the Regent’s Canal joins the Grand Union Canal near Paddington, by the poet Robert Browning.

A former key trading route between London and the Midlands, today this stretch of London's extensive canal network is known as a tranquil, peaceful haven in the heart of London.

A relaxed boat trip is the best way to enjoy Little Venice, and a good vantage point from which to admire the colourful narrowboats and the magnificent early Victorian houses that line the canal. Three companies operate boat tours on this route: London Waterbus Company, Jason's Trips and Jenny Wren at Walker's Quay.

Unless you're making a round trip, don't forget to make the most of Little Venice's land-based attractions before you climb on board – from the quirky waterside cafes to the Puppet Theatre Barge (check mooring dates in advance).
