2: Paddington Basin leading to Little Venice

Paddington BasinThe bus sets off down Praed Street towards London's West End. As you approach the traffic lights look out for a new development of flats faced in red brick and with shops at street level (Tesco express). Behind here is the Paddington canal basin, a spur off the Grand Union canal which connects London to the Midlands. There is access to the basin at the corner of the block, and from here it is a 15 minute walk to the grandly-named Little Venice. On the way there are some intriguing bridges — one which unfolds like an armadillo and another which is designed like a giant screw.
