A Picturesque Escape

Little Venice is famed for its beautiful canals, elegant waterways, and tranquil atmosphere. It's a place where time slows down, and the city's noise fades away into the gentle lapping of water against the canal boats' hulls. The area is lined with quirky waterside cafes, cosy pubs, and delightful restaurants, offering a perfect backdrop for a leisurely afternoon.

The trip takes about 45 minutes and is a wonderful way to see London from a different perspective.

Theatre on the Water

For a touch of culture, Little Venice boasts some of London's most intriguing theatre venues. The Canal Café Theatre offers a candlelit setting for fringe and comedy shows, while the Puppet Theatre Barge presents enchanting performances on a floating stage. These venues provide an intimate and memorable theatre experience unlike any other.

Dining by the Canal

Foodies will delight in the array of dining options available in Little Venice. From the fresh seafood at The Summerhouse to the wide terrace of The Waterway, there's a dining experience for every occasion. Indulge in sleek Chinese cuisine at Pearl Liang or enjoy comfort food at the neighbourhood cafe, Molly's.

Strolls and Sightseeing

Take a leisurely walk along the canals and you'll pass by the elegant Regency streets of Maida Vale, leading to the lush expanses of Regent's Park and the vibrant Camden Town.
