London Love: Tamesis Dock

Albert Embankment, SE1 7TP

Between Lambeth and Vauxhall bridges, on the south side of the river, there is a boat. A boat which is also a pub, Tamesis DockThey do food too, and have live music nights. A boat dripping with fairylights in rainbow colours, decks scattered with pot plants and mismatched furniture. Multiple decks to sit or stand on, sip your drink, gaze out at the water. Inside, fish suspended from the ceiling, pictures hanging on the walls, more mismatched furniture.  I first went in April, for a colleague's leaving drinks. Arrived in the early evening, pink sky, lights popping on along the river. Left in the rain, sheets of it falling, like something from a movie. Went back a few weeks later, in May, camera in tow. Bought beers and sat on the top deck, river calm beneath. 

I am a little bit in love with this place.


  1. lovely pictures, such a great place. i recently went for a friends birthday, despite the July wind and rain it was still great venue.

  2. This looks beautiful, i'm moving to London in a month so i'm definitely adding this to my list of places to visit!

  3. Oh my goodness, this place looks amazing!!! I am definitely going to go next time i'm in London! Their website is super cute too : )
