Why we love Lulubelle Houseboat for a weekend stay in London 

“Lulubelle Houseboat cuts quite a dash in the historic Limehouse Marina. Her plush interiors are serious in style. Her rooms are decadently spacious and her private marina location is a sublime incentive to discover this part of London: you can sashay around Canary Wharf in 5 minutes or see a show at the O2 in just over 3. Pardon me, but is this a houseboat or a penthouse, darlin?”

For a houseboat stay in London, Lulubelle gets the standing ovation. All 900 square foot of her is moored in Limehouse Basin – formerly known as the Regent’s Canal Dock. This private, peaceful marina is located between the City of London and Canary Wharf and is ideal as a London holiday when you want tranquility amongst the bright lights of the city, without feeling totally disconnected from metropolitan life.

Indeed, Lulubelle gives you the best London has to offer just moments away from your mooring: Limehouse DLR station is a short walk with trains to Bank and Tower Hill; there’s the Thames River Taxi nearby that can get you to the O2 in 3 mins; then, just 50 yards from the boat, is Gordon Ramsay’s Bread Street Kitchen and one of London’s oldest pubs, The Grapes (once frequented by Charles Dickens and owned today by Sir Ian McKellen).

Of course, you may not experience any of it once you see what Lulubelle has to keep you onboard. Inside, Lulubelle is a veritable dreamboat. Her tranquil coastal aesthetic extends into each of the five spacious rooms. Sandy hues and nautical blues manifest in the form of velvet dining chairs, woollen throws, thick carpets and alpaca wool-filled bedding.

The open-plan kitchen, living and dining space is modern, elegant and understated – this is high-end confidence if ever you saw it. The showmanship comes via the high-tech touches: a huge Smart TV, a gorgeous fireplace, super-fast WiFi and top-range appliances in the kitchen, including a wine fridge. Forget going without – that’s not Lulubelle’s style.

Move through to the bow and you’ll find two smart new bedrooms, boasting a king-size bed in one and a queen-sized bed in the other, along with plenty of storage. The bathroom on board is full sized – yes, there is a luxury tub for you to soak in – and there’s underfloor heating too… just because your comfort is never taken for granted.

Add to that a separate walk-in shower, indulgent toiletries, and a furnished deck for G&Ts in the afternoon or a drop of red before heading into the West End to catch a show. This is slick city living that’ll leave you floating on cloud nine – and it’s all served up alongside the gentle glow of a truly great capital. Ravishing.


“A beautifully crafted house boat with everything you would ever need for your stay. Insanely comfy beds, well equipped kitchen, great living spaces and lovely table outside to enjoy the view of the other boats. The location couldn’t be better and our hosts were as good as they get!! Would 100% recommend and will be back.
