houseboat guide

London's houseboats and floating homes offer a rare opportunity to live on one of the world’s most iconic waterways. Moorings are located in some of London’s most coveted postcodes, yet houseboats and barges can be obtained at a fraction of the cost of comparatively sized houses and flats.

Living in a houseboat allows you to connect directly with the natural environment, sharing an ever-changing landscape with a host of wildlife. You’ll find a true oasis of calm amid the bustle - with the space, freedom and relaxation that city-dwellers crave. At the same time, life on the moorings exudes a strong sense of community among fellow inhabitants of these unique homes.

Overseen by our Director Nigel Day, riverhomes has become the dominant player in the market - to the extent that we now sell virtually every “floating home with mooring” offered for sale in London. We have sold in every major mooring community on the Thames - and as a result, our expertise is sought by local councils, public corporations and developers.

We offer London’s most comprehensive range of houseboats and floating homes to buy or rent on the river, canal, quay, marina or wharf.

In our capacity as houseboat specialists, we regularly feature in the National press, numerous publications, magazines and blogs, as well as TV programmes.

All our houseboats are sold or rented with an accompanying mooring.
