Bookshop Afloat

“There’s a story waiting inside
Behind the door, as it opens wide
And I wander in, hoping to find
– “A shop with books in” by  The Bookshop Band

Word on the Water,  London,  November 2016

This enticing bookshop sits in a 100-year-old Dutch barge down on the Regents canal, a short stroll from Kings Cross Station.  Be sure to pop down there to enjoy the atmosphere and to choose from a strong selection of both used and new books.

Word on the Water, York Way, Granary Square, London      Tel: 07976 886982       Open 7 days a week, 12:00-19:00.

And as part of Tom’s Foto Tunes challenge, here’s some themed music to set you on your way.  This is written and performed by a band that produce music inspired by books and perform at book festivals and bookshops.

  1. Next time I am in London, I’ll make sure to embark on one of these barges. Was it very wobbly when you were capturing it? Love the shot and the colour of the sky.
