There is nothing quite like browsing through a store filled with miscellaneous books and London’s Word On The Water is no different – except for the fact that it floats on water. Aside from its everyday title, the shop is also known as The London Bookbarge, emphasizing the fact that the business is part bookstore and part boat.
Word On The Water is a one-of-a-kind shop, offering customers the opportunity to explore secondhand novels in a surreal, unconventional environment. As you browse through hundreds of titles, you can leisurely enjoy the peaceful atmosphere that the Regent’s Canal provides. Occasionally, the unique establishment will also offer musicians the chance to play live music from the boat’s roof. This quirky book emporium has been serving as a delightful spot for readers and curious shoppers alike since its remarkable inception in 2011.
