  Little Venice
by draguza
 
 

Favorite thing: Little Venice is one of the prettiest parts of London:

it is the name given to the junction between a canal leading to the Paddington basin, next to the London railway station by the same name, and the Regent's canal. The canal was opened in 1801. It forms a triangular basin with a little islet, hence the reference to Venice. The gardens near the islet are now named after Rembrandt with a reference to another Venice, Amsterdam which shares with Stockholm the appellation of Venice of the North.
Little Venice can be easily reached by Warwick Avenue Underground Station or by car from Marble Arch going northwards through Edgware Road and turning left after a mile in Maida Avenue.
