Have You Visited London's Floating Bookshop?

We all ache for a little slice of peace and tranquility when settling down to enjoy a good book. That is exactly what Word On The Water. It's a floating 'bookbarge' that sells both secondhand and new books to anyone willing to leave dry land for a browse. The 100-year old barge is moored just next to Granary Square in King's Cross and also hosts a number of evening events too, from poetry to music.

Word on the Water can be found afloat on Regent's Canal Towpath, King's Cross (off Granary Square), N1C 4LW.
