Little Venice, Paddington and Pubs
A walk exploring three contrasting areas – Paddington Basin, the old village of Paddington now ‘marooned’ on the other side of the Westway and the area known as Little Venice.
Built in the early 1800s the canals in this area provided a link to both the Midlands and the Thames for the easy transportation of goods. Trade like this has long gone but evidence can still be seen of how the business of the canals functioned.
We start in the area once known derisively as “Stinking Paddington” or the “Paddington Alps” because of the piles of rubbish that awaited transportation out of London. Thankfully it has changed out of all recognition and amongst the new buildings quirky bridges and sculptures are at least several reasons to visit.
