Blomfield Road & Warwick Crescent, W2 Boat trips: London Waterbus Company, 020 7482 2660 Little Venice centres on the junction of two canals: Regent’s Canal, which links to the Thames, and the Grand Union, which extends all the way to Birmingham. Until relatively recently, this area was known as Browning’s Pool, in honour of the 19th-century poet Robert Browning, who lived nearby. The tranquil waterways are a delightful city oasis, overlooked by Rembrandt Gardens, and dotted with colourful houseboats, barges and pleasure craft. Locals sit and gaze at the scene, while boat owners potter about their cheerily decorated vessels. The neighbourhood has several nice eateries. One of the best is The Bridge House Canal Theatre Cafe on Delamere Terrace. This serves tasty food, and there’s also live comedy, music and theatre upstairs. You can also board a ferry at Little Venice, and take a 50-minute trip through Regent’s Park to Camden.
