Little Venice to Camden
If you’re searching for something short and sweet this is the route for you. The gorgeous scenery around the quaint area of Little Venice is perfect for couples or a solo walk. It’s rare that you find somewhere so peaceful in London but if you’re looking to escape the hectic hustle of the busy streets, this is the place to do it.
Just a short walk away from The Montcalm London Marble Arch, Little Venice is an area which is often overlooked by tourists but it has a lot to offer. Set off on your walk and make your way along the quiet canal as you stroll through gorgeous greenery before arriving at the vibrant Camden Town.
The famous Thames River is one of the largest waterways in the country and runs alongside some of the world’s most iconic landmarks. If you want to see as much of the beautiful city as you can, a stroll along the South Bank will soon fill your photo album. From the famous Big Ben Tower to the underground skate park under the South Bank Centre, this pathway has something for everyone. What’s great is that this route is close to a number of our City Hotels London.
For those looking to venture off the beaten path (which, believe it or not, is still possible to do in London), Hampstead Heath is the perfect place. This rural route will transport you away from the busy retail districts and into a wild world of natural beauty. With over 30 ponds, hundreds of ancient trees and all kinds of wild life, Hampstead Heath is worlds away from the prim and proper gardens found around the inner city. Grab your camera and take a trip across the rugged park for some of the best views of London you’ll ever see.
