london love: little venice to camden town

I don’t know about where you are, but there’s been some pretty yucky weather around recently.  I now leave for work in the dark in a morning, and often in the rain. But it’s OK because as soon as I get to the tube, the flask of tea comes out, a podcast goes on, the knitting appears and I have my little morning oasis of calm.

Having said that, October can also produce some glorious weather, and a couple of weekends ago, my family descended for a London jaunt and we went for a wander.  We walked part of the Jubilee Greenway (marked footpaths all around the city) and this particular stretch was new to a us all.

A couple of miles took us along the canal towpath from Little Venice through to Camden and it was simply idyllic.  Removed from the hustle and bustle of the city all around, calm, quiet and full of the glorious colours of Autumn.  This walk is now earmarked in my head as a good thing to do with any new visitors to London as it shows a lovely side of the city that I think can be easily overlooked.

P.S. Where has the gorgeous, golden, autumn weather gone?  It seems we've hit winter drizzle but without having quite reached mulled wine season yet...


  1. Beautiful, beautiful photos. [The one of the 'half arm, half leg' made me laugh, as my Dad used to do this all the time!]. So nice to catch a glimpse of Autumn splendour....[I used to cycle the canal from Hackney in to central London and back - it didn't look anywhere near as nice 20+ years ago (I was surprised, recently, to have seen how beautiful it now looks!)'re right, these hidden little snippets of London are little gems!]

  2. I also love this bit of London ... so much so, we are hoping to take friends on Saturday!

  3. Eye candy :)
    I love the low sun and long shadows and that photo under the bridge is WOW!

  4. Gorgeous gorgeous photos. I love how varied London is. You have captured it so well.
