About our Regent’s Canal and Little Venice Music Walk
From white-stuccoed Victorian terraces, Regency villas and gorgeous gardens, to one of London’s most thriving houseboat communities, this Little Venice Canal Walk is a true gem of peace and tranquillity. Starting in the beautiful Regent’s Park we will enjoy a dynamic walk along the canal to Little Venice to the rhythm of the many renowned artists connected to the area, from the Beatles, Pink Floyd, Cliff Richard, Blur, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Clash.
FROM HISTORY TO NATURE
A true example of Regency London, this experience will make you walk amidst white stuccoed terrace houses, as well as Gothic, Doric and Corinthian villas. Learn about John Nash, the famous architect that developed most of Regency London, from Buckingham Palace to Marble Arch, to Piccadilly Circus, Regent’s Park and Canal. During the walk you will also see the places where some renowned movies took place or took inspiration from, from Paddington Bear, to Mary Poppins to the King’s Speech.
Nature & Skyline views
The experience starts at Regent’s Park, what was once King Henry VIII’s hunting chase. It is known as the ‘jewel in the crown’ and is one of London’s eight Royal Parks with its beautiful gardens, a lake, the London Zoo, London Central Mosque and much more. From Regent’s Park we will go to the beautiful Primrose Hill, from where you will enjoy a breathtaking skyline view over London whilst listening to the many songs that were inspired by this view, from the Beatles, to Blur, to Red Hot Chili Peppers, to John Martin.
Canals & houseboats
From Regent’s Canal to the Grand Union the experience will continue with a relaxing walk alongside the canals, where we will be admiring some stunning villas and passing by quirky harbours and lovely riverside cafes and restaurants. See one of the nicest display of houseboats in London and learn about how life on water is in the capital, with its almost 5,000 houseboats along its many waterways.

I took part to the Brixton Tour and the Little Venice Tour. Very diverse tours but both truly enjoyable. I discovered these areas in a way I would never have done on my own and I met some really lovely people and learnt a really useful walking technique that I have then applied to my everyday life. Can’t wait to do some of the other tours!

I did the Little Venice tour and loved it - You don't get often the chance of exploring the city in this way!
The tour has been fun and Savio gave us lot of tips regarding the area we were discovering - and the music he had chosen was absolutely smashing! If you live in London or are visiting do not miss this out!
