The charity making life better by water

Little Venice Bridge

Little Venice

Little Venice is an oasis of peace and tranquillity. It's thought to have been so-named by the poet, Robert Browning.

Dozens of narrowboats, day trip boats and water cafés line this calm stretch where the Grand Union Canal meets the Regent's Canal.

The famous Little Venice mansions provide a stunning backdrop, and the triangular pool, complete with willow tree, is home to several floating businesses such as the Waterside Café, London Waterbus, a floating art gallery and a hotel boat.
