The Paddington Arm of the Grand Union Canal links the main branch of the Canal to the Regents Canal at Little Venice. This terminus is very well connected, with Warwick Avenue tube station a stones throw here. You can get to the canal very easily here, making it perfectly accessible for those with inflatable SUPs and kayaks.
The Paddington Arm provides you with an exciting opportunity to paddle in both rural and urban environments. This gives you a real insight into parts of London that you don’t often see, with a different viewpoint from the canal. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city and hit the blue gym, where you will be transported into another headspace. You definitely wouldn’t think you were in one of the busiest cities in the world!
The canal gets gradually more built up as you approach Little Venice. Being well connected, this is a great place to start or finish your paddle.
The canal has a towpath running the entire length too which is popular with walkers and cyclists.
