We enjoyed it very much
Life on a 'narrow boat' in the middle of London is very interesting, and we enjoyed it very much. Glenn is very helpful and will explain the details so you'll be ready for this unique houseboating experience!

Had a lovely stay on Glenn’s narrowboat. The location is fantastic. Very central with easy access to tube lines. The private mooring feels very peaceful and secure and the boat itself is very warm and cozy!
Sandra M - England
Wonderful boat, very comfortable for two people and cosy with the wood burner going. The host was very accommodating and the location was great with a pub conveniently close by. Very quiet and peaceful nights sleep on Regent’s Canal.
