My floaty home "Freedom" is a 70ft widebeam canal boat continuously cruising around London and not always moored where listed in Airbnb PLEASE CHECK LOCATION BEFORE BOOKING. Check "freedomcanalstudio" website for location & cruise schedule. Parties, concerts, dinners, yoga, meditation, reiki, massage, music and other creative events are possible in addition to b&b and retreats. Guests are welcome to play the grand piano and sing, dance whatever: the boat is called Freedom after all. I have listings for 2 double rooms & a hammock and could sleep 12 with some initiative. Please let me know any dietary requirements for breakfast (included), and whether you want dinner (£15 extra). More pics can be found via "Freedom Canal Studio" where we take cruise party bookings and deal with anything else not covered by b&b. Captain David: Entrepreneur, musician, livaboard, polyamorist.
