Little Venice, about a square mile within London's Maida Vale district, is one of the more exclusive residential districts in central London. When the Grand Union Canal was opened in 1820, the area was home to artists, writers and prostitutes. Today, Little Venice is a bit more genteel. The area is comprised of about ten tree-lined streets with beautiful 17th century white stucco homes plus shops on Formosa Street and Clifton Gardens. Easy access to Oxford Street, the West End, Paddington Station and even Heathrow make this oasis on near London's canals a much coveted, fashionable and expensive address.
