Exploring London from the water

They say that if you’re tired of London, you’re tired of life. A bit dramatic perhaps, but if you’re stuck in a rut and thought you’d seen all of London, then exploring it from the riverbank will give you a completely different view of the city!

Shortly after our move back to Chelsea (see how we made a rental flat our own), we pottered down to Putney pier and hopped in to a friend’s inflatable boat.

You can push a boat out quite easily by Putney Bridge, on the wide ramp next to where all the rowing schools are. Just pack a picnic and away you go!

We cruised all the way past Hammersmith and Barnes, through Richmond, under Richmond bridge and on past Ham and Kingston. 

It was beautiful seeing this different view of London, and felt like escaping the city!

A must-do for anyone looking for a bit of adventure…
