What you can expect

Join me for a typical Devonshire Cream Tea (or coffee), see a wide variety of boats and birds, and discover what it's like to live on London's beautiful canals and rivers. Learn all about the history of Britain's working and leisure boats and how they have now become popular accommodation options.

We commence with a walk along the tow path to look at all the different types of boats, from huge 100 year old Dutch barges to tiny cabin cruisers, and the occasional wreck! You will see how boat life has revived the industrial waterways, opening them up to leisure use.

The waterways are also home to many types of bird life and their nests. Bring peas or lettuce if you would like to feed them as apparently bread isn't good for them or the environment.

Afterwards we will stop for a traditional English afternoon or morning tea with warm scones (gluten free available on request), Cornish clotted cream and jam. There will be a chance to discuss more about the ups and downs of living on a boat then, or simply chat with fellow visitors.

I can always customize the tour to your specific preferences and times.
Just get in touch and I look forward to welcoming you to London's waterways!
