Canal Boat Cavalcade 2017 at Little Venice

There is a pool at the junction of the Regents Canal and Grand Union Canal that is now known as Little Venice.  Every year there is a Festival and Cavalcade of canal boats.  Some have traveled hundreds of miles using the vast network of canals that were once the lifeblood of Britain’s trade and industry.

There is a pleasant waterbus ⇐ between Camden Lock and Little Venice. At Little Venice there is a floating café and an enchanting puppet theatre ⇒ for all ages.

Canal boats became ornamental even as working boats.

“One likes to be a good sport, but if one more reveler refers to me as loofah neck I shall scream”.

    • Yes, and such pleasant people. I think it’s the effect of living by the water or perhaps the desire to do so. 🙂
