Londoners discover house boats

7th April 2017

The number of Londoners living on boats has rocketed, with boats registered to be moored on the capital’s waterways having increased by nearly 60% in the past five years to almost 4,000 according to latest figures from the Canal & River Trust. Fran Read, a spokeswoman for the trust, believes there is romance in life afloat: "It was once a very alternative thing to do but now it has become a lot more acceptable”.
