    Little Venice.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is a nice place where you could have a cruise on various multicoloured boats.

    To go there you have to take the tube and stop at Warwick Avenue tube station ( Bakerloo line) then go on by foot...

    For those of you up to a little "lower" culture. Try Kings Cross Red Light Area.

    A small version of Amsterdam's Red Light District.

    Highgate

    by Sjalen Written May 6, 2007

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Lots of people make it to Highgate Cemetary but few people realise that Highgate itself is worth staying for. Since the cemetary is downhill from the village centre, people often miss it. To be ctd.

    This isn't so off the beaten path but if you want to do something a bit different, a canal boat ride from Little Venice to Camden is nice as it shows you a different side of London.
