The poet Robert Browning, who lived overlooking the canal, famously referred to this area of Maida Vale with its charming Regency architecture and open canals as Little Venice and is himself remembered in the naming of Browning's Pool.

For those who weren't put off by the heavy rain in the morning, Gondola rides in Little Venice were among the attractions for the first Regent's Canal Festival on the 14th and 15th of July.

This photo was taken on the 14th July at 2pm from Warwick Crescent and it's the first time I've seen a Gondola at Little Venice - shown here next to a more typical Canal boat.

There are several established canal boat trips to Camden past Regent's Park and London Zoo that also offer cover in case of rain including London Waterbus and Jason's Trip.

Nearest Train/Tube: Warwick Avenue/Paddington.
