For a truly unique way to experience London, read on!

Our boat 'Lorien' is a high-end canal boat in all respects which makes a comfortable and cosy retreat in the heart of trendy East London all-year round. Search 'East London from the air ' on Yutube for a great video.

This boat has lovingly fitted interiors and was designed for maximum comfort, versatility and enjoyment.

It provides a double bedroom, a full bathroom with large shower, a functional kitchen with granite worktops, a dining area which converts into a second double bed and a lounge with cosy stove (October > April), hammock and a sofabed.

Lorien is located in the heart of über cool East London which offers a kaleidoscope of tastes and cultures with its shops, pubs, restaurants and cafes and an eclectic market with foods from around the world saturdays.


A cycle hire station is on your doorstep as well as public transport connections to other London attractions.

London Fields, Brick Lane, Shoreditch, Colombia Road Flower Market and Victoria Park are all within walking distance.

Haggerston (overground) and Bethnal Green (underground) are the nearest stations.


Staying on a boat connects you with the local community and nature, bringing a true sense of calm and peace. It puts you at the heart of the action whilst being in a world of its own. If you are interested in learning about life on the canal, we would recommend the London Canal Boat Museum in King's Cross.


East London it the undeniable heart of London's trendsetting nightlife. Whether you are after the established hotspot of Shoreditch, the new King of Cool Dalston or the edgier Clapton and Hackney Wick, these are all within a ten minute bike or bus ride.

"An oasis of tranquility in the heart of buzzy London"

This was our first time staying on a canal boat and we absolutely loved the combination of being in the heart of the city whilst at the same time being so close to nature. We loved the connection with the swans in the morning! The boat itself if very comfortable and remarkably spacious. Would stay again.
