You’ll have the use of Telling Tales bookshop for yourself for up to 3 hours with plenty of time to browse the books and play in our reading nooks. You’re welcome to bring a picnic and you’ll have access to our toilet and wi-fi whilst onboard.
The Telling Tales Experience is a great treat for younger children with the comfort of knowing you’ll have the space to yourself.

Throughout the summer we will be moored along the River Lea, Hertford Union and Regents Canal in East London. However, as part of our licensing agreement with the Canal & River Trust (CRT) we have to move our boat every two weeks and will not always be able to guarantee the exact location more than a day in advance. If you have any questions about the location please email us using firstname.lastname@example.org.
If your visit is for a special occasion and you would like to have a cake at your party we can give you the names of some great local cake makers and arrange for the cake to be delivered to the boat.
