Little Venice

A picturesque neighbourhood of clotted-cream-coloured houses and waterside cafes

Where the Grand Union Canal meets the Regent’s Canal, Little Venice feels a million miles from the loud and bustling Brixton, where Ed O’Donnell and his partner once lived.

Alongside the pretty houses, tree-lined streets and gentle water taxis lend the area a holiday feel. The effect is calming and restorative, which is perhaps why the area is a big draw for upsizers and people who have been priced out of nearby Notting Hill.
