"In July 1829, George Shillibeer started London's first regular bus service. For one shilling and sixpence, you could be transported in horse drawn comfort from Paddington Green to Bank via Angel."

Little Venice's canals add to the charm of the area - it really is like being in Italy!

About Little Venice

Maida Avenue, Warwick Crescent and Blomfield Road, the streets in the south of Maida Vale overlooking Browning's Pool including the section of Randolph Avenue south of Clifton Gardens are known as Little Venice. The name is believed to have been coined by the English poet Robert Browning who lived here from 1862 to 1887. Browning's Pool is named after the poet, and is the junction of Regent's Canal and the Paddington arm of the Grand Union Canal. South Maida Vale is one of London's prime residential areas, and it is also known for its shops and restaurants. A regular waterbus service operates from Little Venice eastwards around Regent's Park, calling at London Zoo and on towards Camden Town.
