Exploring Little Venice – London

Hidden behind Paddington station, nestled snugly between high rises and city townhouses lies little Venice.

The canal network runs throughout London but little Venice has to be it’s heart. It’s the perfect viewing point to sit and have a coffee, read a book and watch the beautifully painted boats glide silently by.

I know a director who actually lives on one of these boats and works full time in the city, and the residences are a mixture of ages and nationalities.

Fancy like spending a night on one? Check out this link to some I found on Air B&B for only £20 a night!

Discovering Holland Park – Kensington – London

In the heart of the borough of affluent Kensington, surrounded by red brick town houses resides 22 acres of parkland.

There literally is something for everyone, from a football pitch, cafe, open air opera and award winning restaurant.  Giant chess sets, tennis and a Japanese water garden with huge Koi carp.
