Maida Hill Tunnel and Café Laville

On 15th August we passed through Maida Hill Tunnel near the start of the Regents Canal (if you're entering from Little Venice, as we did). We had to wait for a trip boat to emerge - you can see its tunnel light in the photo below.

Here it is again, a bit bigger!

Some of the people on the trip boat seemed to be enjoying themselves; others looked less sure about it.

And then under the Café Laville and into the short (272 yards) tunnel. What a fantastic location for a café! I looked it up to see if it had a website. I couldn't find one - but top of the search results was a review site giving mostly bad reviews. To be fair, the poor reviews (mainly for bad service) were written over a year ago; the one recent review was rather more positive.

Tomorrow: Forget the Granny Effect, check out the Elvis Effect!
