River life

london house boats and a superb view

You have to have more than a few pounds to rub together to have your home on the Thames in London. Walk along the river to the west of the city and you can see the huge private houses of a fortunate few, backing onto beautiful gardens and private piers. Closer to the city centre there’s an ever growing number of fancy riverside apartments, with amazing views, sports facilities and gardens.

However, it’s not all about big money. Look onto the water and there is an other less expensive way to live life on the river.  For the adventurous few, several house boats float here, bobbing up and down with the ducks, in the wake of the large boats that still use this waterway as a transport route.

Life on the river is definitely in our top ten of the coolest places to live in our capital city. Even if it is a bit cold in winter!

Where’s the coolest place to live in your city? And where would your dream home be?
