 Maida Vale is an affluent residential area of west London, situated btween St John's Wood and Kilburn.

Its rather unusual name stems from the Battle of Maida, fought between the British and the French not far from the town of Maida in Italy in 1806.

The area known as Little Venice is part of Maida Vale.
