Boat Moorings & Marinas

Hermitage Community Moorings

16 Wapping High St, London E1W 1NG, UK – 020 7481 2122

It's a very special place and unique in London. All the moorings in this cooperative are freehold moorings. Membership in the cooperative to buy a mooring is required. There are other stipulations on the type of boat, owners must reside permanently on the boat and a number of other requirements which reinforce the stated aim and charter of the place. For all intents and purposes, the only way to obtain a mooring is to purchase one of the existing boats if they come up for sale IF the sale includes the mooring. Even then you will have to be approved by the cooperative committee and meet the residency requirements but if you can manage all that you will have something truly special and unique. Needless to say, the location simply is outstanding, outstanding, outstanding. Be aware though that at high tide the moorings can get quite rough and rolly from wakes from passing marine traffic on the working river. Make sure you spend some time on the boat you intend to buy at high water so you know what you are signing up for in addition to the other stipulations and requirements. If you meet all the requirements, jump through all the hoops and take up residence, you will have a wonderful, tight knit local community with great services, good maintenance of the facilities, and a location that can't be beat.

There are regular open days where you can freely walk around and have a look at the boats.

Limehouse Basin Marina

The Harbourmaster's Office, 46 Goodhart Place Limehouse, London E14 8EG, UK – 020 7308 9930

Lovely place if you want some outdoor space in the city. There are well marked walking, running and cycle routes around the marina and down the canal so on a sunny day, this is a great place to get some fresh air and check out the boats. For boat owners, the marina mooring prices are not cheap, but then this is London!

Absolutely fabulous and spectaculous place in London. Must visit!

Battlebridge Basin

Regent's Canal Towpath, Kings Cross, London N1 9UY, UK – 07580 238226

Public space for boating

Boat Trips & Excursions - if available

Thames Boat Rides from Embankment Pier

Embankment Pier, Victoria Embankment, London WC2N 6NU, UK – 0343 222 1234

Great time. Fun and exciting. Great tour guides

The Thames Clipper is probably the best no-fuss transportation system along the Thames. I took it over the summer to go from Central London to Greenwich for some sightseeing, and it certainly was scenic! Believe me, the best view of the Tower Bridge is by going under it first! The price isn't cheap, but comparably, it is much cheaper than the other boats that go down/up the Thames (this one just doesn't have the commentary). If it's a nice day, don't bother sitting inside - try to grab a seat outdoors at the back of the boat. The clipper is really better than taking the tube, especially in the summer!

City Cruises Plc Head Office

1 Scott's Unit 6, Scotts Sufferance Wharf, Mill Street, London SE1 2DF, UK – 020 7740 0400

Best way to see London and eayiest way to get into the centre and to go to Greenwich. Cheaper then the river bus if you show the ticket office a travel card or Oyster card. Takes the same amount if time as the river bus. Double decker boats, open top desk. Coffee and food, snacks and bar all on the boat and bathrooms. Live or recorded commentary in English but free headphone so you can hear 7 other languages. Friendly staff, amazing views. They also offer special boats for Afternoon tea, Lunch or Dinner cruises also very good. If you want to go to a London attraction you can save money by buying the tickets with City Cruises. Highly recommend this, better then sitting on the tube / subway train.

Its one of the best cruises to be on if u wan to.see london on the river

Local Parks & Gardens

Wapping Gardens

Tench St, St Katharine's & Wapping, London E1W 2PA, UK – 020 7364 5000

Small park for kids with swings and slides and AstroTurf. Has a tennis court and a small football pitch. The park does has benches all round but the grass has a lot of dog poop where lazy dog owners do not clean up after thwir dogs which can be off-putting. A variety of people type from families and kids, to friends and then you get the odd up to no good youths sometimes. They are no trouble to you directly but definitely would be a better place without youths looking for what they deem as fun where others deem as nuisance.

The place is not big but is quite nice here.

Queen Square Gardens

Queen Square, London WC1N 3AU, UK – 020 7974 1693

Good place, not great. Very close to Great Ormond street Hospital for sick children. Very quiet, lot of benches to sit for hours together . Good views, beautiful flowers! Overall great place to hang out near famous GOSH.. .

Absolutely beautiful park!!! Lovely for just relaxing and enjoying a beautiful clean park

Trinity Square Gardens

38 Trinity Square, London EC3N 4DJ, UK – 020 7364 5000

First of all great location and amazing views! Lots of seats all around the garden where you can sit down and rest. Green area where you can lay down and have picnic. Also have historical architecture. Close to Tower Bridge and with the view to castle. Just cross the road are plenty of places where to pick up lunch. 1 min away from closest tube station. Ideal place for rest if you are tourist or need a lunch brake.

Lovely square. Beautiful views to Tower Bridge, Four Season Hotel and Tower of London

Great website!. Click below to find gardens open during the year around London or London. There are photos and lots of detail about the garden.
Dr Johnson's House

17 Gough Square, London EC4A 3DE, UK – 020 7353 3745

An interesting and informative house to visit. It seemed in need of significant signposting- at least from Fleet Street. We used Google maps to locate it. Good guide cards available for a self guided tour of the house and helpful receptionists as well. Access for those who are less able is compromised by the house having steps and stairs, as part of its original fabric. Best accessed by walking from a train station or bus. A bus would get visitors closer.

I love this little hidden gem. They have one of the most interesting series of events. I have been to a theatrical performance by Palimpest on how Dr Johnson would hold salon with his peers. Last week I went to learn about the Bluestockings literary circle of women writers. They just bring history to life in the most incredible way.

Charles Dickens Museum

48 Doughty St, London WC1N 2LX, UK – 020 7405 2127

Relatively unknown and hidden gem of a museum with eager and knowledgeable docents ready to answer any and all questions about Dickens' life, writing and relationships and capable of drawing your interest to pertinent documents and objects of his. The two houses comprising the museum contain numerous items, pictures and information and art related to his life in London and is thoroughly and well presented. There are now exhibit spaces for current artworks which relate to Dickens which change from time to time and there is a well outfitted shop as well as a lovely cafe with a fine cream tea and other goodies, somewhat representational of the food of the period and well as tasty and current. For about the same price as two admissions you can become a member for a year, allowing you to enter with a guest an unlimited number of times, so that is a great deal.

What a fantastic museum! It really captures the world of Dickens. It’s a lot larger than you’d think and you could easily lose a few hours here. I’d recommend to go on a tour if available. It felt like you really disappeared into the world of Dickens. Well worth visiting this hidden gem.
