One of the pleasures of having a shop in the residential area of Maida Vale in London is being able to step out of the door and find yourself only five minutes away from the beautiful and iconic waterways of Little Venice. When the sun is out, lunch breaks can be spent meandering along the towpath and admiring the colourful narrow boats moored there. They are often festooned with plants and decorations and you will find that the inhabitants of Little Venice are always very friendly and happy to chat about their unusual lifestyle. They might even let you have a look on board if you’re very lucky.
There are also plenty of stops to be made as you make your way along the picturesque route, from waterside pubs to waterborne theatres and café’s where you can get a real taste of life on the water. You can opt for a river cruise or you can just sit quietly on a bench and watch the world go by. So when you next visit us, make sure you take the time to see our beautiful surroundings as well.
