My floaty home cruises around London canals. Cosy warm wood burning stove in winter plus radiators. Freedom is not always where listed but usually in Central London. Parties, concerts, life drawing and other events exploring self expression are possible. Guests are welcome to play the grand piano and sing, dance whatever: the boat is called Freedom after all! I have listings for double room, hammock and tent but not continually listed - please ask if it's not showing. Message if you want to explore creating a listing & cruise within London to suit your stay - for example I could sleep 12 with some initiative! Also let me know any dietary requirements for breakfast, and whether you want dinner, which is £15 including free drinks. More pics can be found via Freedom Canal Studio. Captain David: Entrepreneur, musician, livaboard, polyamorist. I live in a widebeam canal boat with my beloved grand piano. I teach self expression and have a music production business. I play chess and swim competitively. 2 lovely livaboards help me host, particularly when I am away: Captain ABK: A narrowboat livaboard! Graduate, working at Harvey Nichols wine department. Also involved in Rotary. Great dancer and cook! Captain Gaia: Film maker. Another narrowboat livaboard and a skipper. Mother Earth. Into paranormal and choirs!
