It’s nice small place, not much there. Few boats, some of them are coffee shops, nice to sit for a sip. Basically a small river with a garden.

My sister and I walked Regents Canal over to Little Venice one fine Sunday morning. As folks were walking to church, we passed by these adorable little canal boats. I was surprised to see these people actually live on the barges vs working on them....More
