About Maida Vale

Maida Vale is an approximately one square kilometre area situated in West London and I think it’s pretty fair to say that most of it is affluent. Additionally, like most London areas they seemed to have packed quite a bit in.

It is the home of Lords Cricket Ground, a few of the BBC’s main recording studios reside here too, not to mention in the south they have ‘Little Venice’. This being a neighbourhood of a partly tree-lined, three-way junction of canals complete with Regency houses, and converted canal barges.

The name ‘Little Venice’ is a recently coined one and has been eagerly taken up by local estate agents who have miraculously expanded the area wider to areas that were previously known as ‘The Paddington Basin’. Although ‘Little Venice’ is nothing like the real Venice it is well worth a visit for the shops and canal side pubs.
