Maida Vale District
Nearest Tube: Maida Vale
The area of London just to the north west of Paddington is called Maida Vale, after the battle of Maida that took place in Italy in 1806. The area is very pretty and is cut through the middle by the Regent's Canal, earning the area directly around the canal the nickname Little Venice.
The area is predominantly residential, with the architecture dating from the Edwardian era. Famous past residents of the area include Sir John Tenniel, the illustrator of Alice in Wonderland and the radio pioneer Sir Ambrose Fleming.
