Andrew Travels London – Little VenicesteemCreated with Sketch.

in #travel5 years ago

The United Kingdom is crossed by a web of canals. Little Venice is where Grand Union Canal, Regent’s Canal and the Paddington Basin meet. Canal boat houses and cafés are parked by the walkways and the residents of them are able to live a nomadic lifestyle by being able to motor from place to place.

The Regency-style mansions and townhouses in Maida Vale, where Little Venice is located, were built in the early 19th century. The white painted stucco homes make it obvious in their grandness that this is an expensive part of town. Richard Branson, Robbie Williams and Noel Gallagher have homes here.

The boats had chimneys for wood stoves and little gardens on their roofs. The houses looking over them also had lush and colourful gardens. The best ones annoyingly had fences too high to look over, but my wingspan and phone managed to snap a peak! :)

Obviously some of these homes have better gardeners than I have (am)!
Lovely, @andrewe!

The residents are lucky as they can afford to have so much gardening space in such an expensive city! And I'm sure you're a wonderful gardener. :)

Glad you enjoyed the post! Another one of the Portobello Market on a busy day is coming out today!

Hah! You have to check out yesterday's post before you make such assumptions! ;-)

Will do in the morning! It's 03:00AM, got my piece on the Portobello Market up, now it's time for a goodnight's rest. I followed you too, by the way, so I'll stay updated with your posts! :)

Hope you're having a lovely day, and Happy Canada Day to you!

Thank you, kind sir!
Sweet dreams, I hope you had - a little Yoda talk there!
Trying to think up posts that don't end up with crickets!

Very nice place. Following you now.

Thank you, @thailand-funfun! I'm glad you like the post! Thank you for the follow. :)
