Beautiful walk through Little Venice that will make anyone a convert to West London

I’ll be sincere. I’ve lived in London for over 5 years, and I’ve rarely been to west London in any respect.

It all the time felt like a complicated, faraway a part of town, when my house, work, pals and nightlife have been all in north and east London.

So I made a decision to make a journey to Little Venice on my every day stroll, to see how the canals of the west examine to my beloved Hackney’s, and to seek out out if I could possibly be transformed to being a west Londoner.

My stroll began close to Regent’s park, went previous London zoo, up the canal, by means of St John’s Wooden, onto Warwick Avenue, and down into Little Venice.

It was a gorgeous stroll, full of massive, white Regency homes, quirky canal boats and even a zebra.

Little Venice itself is a triangular formed basin instantly north-west of Paddington, and near Warwick Avenue station. Sadly, all the canal boats often open to the general public have been closed as a result of lockdown, however I think about they’d make a incredible day trip as soon as it’s secure sufficient to raise restrictions.

There’s a puppet theatre, waterside café, canal and river cruises boat (which even recommends on-board marriage proposals). Additional around the bend in direction of Paddington consists of the Electrical Barge, which provides bottomless brunches and the London Shell Co. which serves fish and chips and likewise doubles up as a wine store.

I’ll undoubtedly be again.
