Little Venice is a small area in affluent south Maida Vale, denoting the meeting point of the Grand Union Canal and Regent's Canal. The intersection of the canals forms a small basin from where you can take boat tours towards Regent's Park and Camden Locks. It is also possible to walk the length of Regent's Canal -- with some detours where the canalside path is closed for public access. This is a very nice place indeed. Good place to bring your girlfriend and your camera!

Most spots around Little Venice are accessible for wheelchair users through ramps and slopes. These are rather steep in places, some have rough cobblestone surfaces. For taking a boattrip you would need help to be lifted aboard. I haven't seen a disabled toilet around, either.
