More than 700,000 people visit Little Venice every year
In August 2008 British Waterways licensed London's first paddle-powered water taxi on the Regent's Canal. The new 'canal cabbies' are similar to the gondolas in the Italian city.
Every year here is the Little Venice Music Festival, usually held in September. It is not just the scenery that is tranquil and relaxing - the classical music on offer here is a worthy addition to the area.
