Have you ever wanted to take a trip to lovely London and explore such sights as Big Ben, the Thames River, and Shakespeare's Globe Theater? Why not add something truly unique to your trip by spending the weekend exploring London and sleeping on a houseboat?
This eye-catching, head-turning houseboat listed on AirBnB is located in a peaceful, secluded spot on the river, where you'll hear the calls of swans and ducks as you enjoy unbelievable sunsets in the evening. The boat offers three separate flats, and staying in one offers a more luxurious option than you'd imagine, including all of the modern conveniences one needs as well as plenty of space to relax and unwind. Upon entering your boat flat, you'll see a roomy living area that leads into the kitchen.

The living room is furnished with warm shades of brown, creating a cozy environment that includes a leather couch, animal skin rug, and leather ottoman. End tables add a polished look, and the hardwood floors are a charming feature.
Multiple floor to ceiling windows let in plenty of natural light and provide a stunning view during the day or the evening.
Adjacent to the living room is a small dining area, complete with a table and four chairs. Pops of color are spotted around the room in the form of flowers, which catch the eye and add even more appeal to the comfortable room.
The kitchen is loaded with features and fully furnished. Inside, you'll find modern appliances including a dishwasher, oven, microwave, and refrigerator/freezer. ​
The small but fully functional bathroom offers a standup shower, sink, and toilet.
A cheerful and light winding set of stairs takes you to the bathroom, located on the top floor of the boat. Plants add beauty to the boat's interior, and eclectic artwork creates a sophisticated, elegant design.
Upstairs you'll find a cozy bedroom with a double bed. There's also a beautiful oversized closet, shelves, and storage under the bed should you require it.
It's no secret that the best part of staying on a houseboat is enjoying the views of nature, and in this case, the deck is the perfect spot to catch a glimpse of ducks, geese, and swans floating lazily about.
This is an example of the locals you may come into contact with during your stay!
The real treat comes at night as the sun is setting. Relax on the deck and enjoy the true beauty of nature as the day winds down in gorgeous London.
