Little Venice

Paddington Central, London town
a haven here I found
Little Venice, tranquil peace
despite the noise around
Ducks upon the water
Longboats moored at bay
A rather pleasant find
at the start of this fine day

Little Venice is a honeypot location in the heart of West London where the Regents Canal meets the Paddington arm of the Grand Union Canal. The name ‘Little Venice’ is thought to have been coined by the poet Robert Browning.
