Westbourne Place enjoys a fantastic location in Maida Vale, a leafy inner city suburb and situated on the edge of the West End nestled between St John's Wood and Notting Hill. Maida Vale is known as London's Little Venice because of the canal that connects Camden, Maida Vale and central London. One can hop on a boat, stroll or cycle along the pathways in this quaint and village like setting. With attractive tree lined streets and hidden secret gardens surrounding the Victorian and Edwardian buildings, Little Venice and Maida Vale have a rich history, while offering an escape from the city with the lush areas surrounding the Grand Union Canal and Little Venice. Cobblestone side streets and secluded courtyards characterise Maida Vale, a destination neighbourhood for placid and comfortable lifestyles.
Clifton Road and Clifton Gardens are the area's prime shopping streets and feature a range of independent shops, a pharmacy, vet, mini supermarket and several restaurants, delis and cafes. Clifton Nurseries is possibly the oldest Garden Centre in London; the nursery has been supplying residents with plants and gardening since 1880. The Prince Alfred pub and Formosa Dining Room in Warrington Crescent attract visitors from afar for their drinks, the stunning Victorian architecture and interior decoration. Four times a week, the Canal Café Theatre stages NewsRevue, a satirical review of the week's news where writers and performers keep current events fresh and sharp. Also within the area, is Paddington Recreation ground which has indoor and outdoor sports facilities with green open spaces.
