We live next to the amazing Canary Wharf in Zone 2 on a Cute Dutch Barge called Lydia. 54 Feet in length,she is a homely Barge with bundles of character The Barge, Lydia, is our home full of period charm located in a special neighbourhood near the river Thames and canals with lots of local wildlife, in fact some of our neighbours are swans and ducks! We will meet you at Canary Wharf Tube station (very easy to get to from central London on the Jubilee Line). From there we will take the scenic route to our home, around 10 mins walk, showing you the important sites. On arrival we will show you around the neighbourhood and views of the river and canals We will then welcome you onto Lydia and tell you all about our life here and what fun it is to live by the water and what is special about this part of East London We will then offer you some delicious food, we are huge foodies and always eat fresh home cooked food. One of the typical British foods is traditional Afternoon Tea, so we will offer you a selection of scones, thick British cream and jam, a slice of homemade cake and either tea or coffee, all served on British vintage crockery! Afterwards we will walk you back to Canary Wharf Tube
