Rembrandt Gardens, Little Venice

You'll find this peaceful spot where Regent’s Canal meets Grand Union Central Canal, offering a welcome respite from the bustle of nearby Paddington station. Rembrandt Gardens are rumoured to have been named by poet Robert Browning after the 17th century Dutch painter Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rijn, and appropriately feature colourful tulip borders.
