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.

Lovely part of London, quite a surprise. Take the boat trip to Camden Locks if you have about an hour. At the end of the day, it is only one way. Very nice to do on a warm day--and very interesting.
