Word on the Water - London

We’ve seen some unusual bookshops but Word on the Water, London really does take the biscuit! This bohemian book barge has been near Paddington Station for a while but you can check their Facebook for their location. It’s well known to Londoners and visitors too and is definitely worth a visit.

 

Here’s what it says about them on their Facebook page.
“A Dutch Book barge, selling quality second hand books, come see if you can’t find the book for you, or even just for a look.
We have classics, cult, contemporary fiction, a large range of children’s books and art and photography, plus some quirky stuff that you would never think to look for but may be very pleased to find. Also Poetry Slams, readings and live acoustic music on our roof stage.”
