Telling Tales

A purpose-built 60x12ft widebeam boat is home to our bookshop where we specialise in illustrated children's books. We stock books we are passionate about and are proud to work with local publishers and have a wide range of independently published titles.

We regularly run storytelling sessions, workshops and creative events for children. To see what's coming up please see the Events section of our website,

We're a Roving Trader and our location varies but you can often find us on the Regents Canal, Paddington Arm, Limehouse Cut and Lea Navigation. If you can't make it to our boat then our books can also be ordered through our website.
