A Little Bit About Little Venice
The arrival of the canal in 1801 at Paddington soon saw it become an important waterways hub. It started out as a dirty, run down surburb of London. For the first 150 years prior to becoming Little Venice, many houses were built around the canal, and many new roads were laid down.
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 Little Venice. However this was disputed by Lord Kinross in 1966 and by London Canals. Both assert that Lord Byron humorously coined the name, which now applies more loosely to a longer reach of the canal system.
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 Castle pub. A regular waterbus service operates from Little Venice eastwards around Regent’s Park, calling at London Zoo and on towards Camden Town.
Situated in post code W9 this area of London has played a significant part in the capital’s development both economically and culturally.
