Go go go: Little Venice festival

Tomorrow is the last day of the Canalway Cavalcade at the best part of Regent’s Canal – in North London in the section of it known as Little Venice because, you guessed it, it’s an adorable canal area with picturesque bridges, colorful canal boats, and grand flats lining the canal. Take the tube to Warwick Avenue and follow the signs – this festival is a yearly gathering of a large number of the host of eccentric canal boats (and canal boat owners…) that roam London’s waterways year round. Come see them decorated in their finery and enjoy this little-known yet tightly-knit subculture.

We went last year and it was amazing, a real treat: canal1

Even if you can’t make it tomorrow, Little Venice is always recommended as a place to visit – it’s one of those wonderful parts of London that feels like a magical other place entirely, when you emerge from the tube and have been transported to an entire other place than from whence you came. If it’s a sunny day and you’re looking to get outside of central London, have a stroll, and maybe a nice cup of tea overlooking some water, Little Venice is the place for you.
