Wibbley WobbleyCute, unpretentious bar housed on a boat docked in the Thames.

A world away from the bustling, brash mainstream bars, pubs and clubs of central London, is this dinky drinking den housed on a boat. Originally owned by Malcolm Hardee – one of the biggest names in alternative comedy – Wibbley Wobbley offers a quirky, light-hearted take on London nightlife. Descend the gangplank into a small bar decorated with nautical knickknacks, a warming stove and a unique array of old coins and notes or ,when the weather’s, good head up on deck for some fantastic views along the river and a fresh cooling breeze. No gimmicks, no glamorous events, just a nice, unpretentious, friendly watering hole on the water.

Best for:
Low ceilings, nautical memorabilia, river views and café on deck.
