It is the perfect summer for houseboat living. The best way to stay cool in the capital is to take to the water, become a houseboat resident and enjoy long, idyllic evenings from dockside sun decks and riverside roof terraces.

The Thames is London’s biggest open space, and floating homes make great pieds-à-terre for City workers, or fantastic studios and office spaces for artists and creatives.

£199,950: Poplar Dock Marina, Docklands E14
This one-bedroom Dutch Barge is moored in the Poplar Dock Marina, close to Blackwall DLR and within walking distance of Canary Wharf. The main living area is a long open-plan space with a living room/entertainment area, dining space and kitchen with wooden floors, and a separate study could be used as a small second bedroom.
