London area of Maida Vale guide

What to do and where to stay in London's Maida Vale neighbourhood

The peaceful boulevards of Maida Vale seem to belong in a different, less crowded city than the rest of London (though closer examination reveals that most of the palatial Edwardian houses have in fact been split into flats), where children can play in the street without fear of traffic. The most famous of these streets is Abbey Road, where the Beatles recorded their later albums, and took the photo for one of the iconic album covers of the twentieth century. The southern end of the neighbourhood is marked by Regent’s Canal and the area known as Little Venice, where a huge community of houseboats form their own hippy village in the midst of some of London’s most desirable property. Keep going south and you'll reach Queensway and Paddington with its profusion of hotels and public transport.
