Little Venice and London 12.10.2013
Time for another walk around London.
Little Venice, London:
Maida Avenue, Warwick Crescent and Blomfield Road, the streets in the south of Maida Vale overlooking Browning’s Pool including the section of Randolph Avenue south of Clifton Gardens are known as Little Venice. According to one story, the poet Robert Browning, who lived in the area from 1862 to 1887, coined the name. However, this was disputed byLord Kinross in 1966 and by London Canals. Both assert that Lord Byron (1788–1824) humorously coined the name, which now applies more loosely to a longer reach of the canal system. Browning’s Pool is named after the poet, and is the junction of Regent’s Canal and the Paddington arm of the Grand Union Canal.
South Maida Vale, one of London’s prime residential areas, also has a reputation for its shops and restaurants, as well as for the Canal Cafe Theatre, the Puppet Theatre Barge, the Waterside Café and the Warwick Castlepub. A regular waterbus service operates from Little Venice eastwards around Regent’s Park, calling at London Zoo and on towards Camden Town. Since 1983 the Inland Waterways Association has hosted the Canalway Cavalcade in Little Venice
At Paddington basin, which is a stones throw from Little Venice you will come across two rather large and kinda freaky looking statues by the British Sculptor Sean Henry. The two giant men that look too real for my liking are called Standing Man and Walking Man.
