3 Best Houseboats In Surrey, UK

| 2 min read

You can find the county of Surrey just south of London, and it is also actually part of the Greater London area. This proximity makes it a great destination for both local weekenders and tourists also visiting London. You can enjoy a quiet day touring green spaces such as Royal Horticultural Society Garden Wisley, or historical sites such as the well-preserved Hampton Court Palace.

Surrey is also home to many rivers and canals that are still widely used today, including River Wey and River Thames. There are commercial establishments set along these waterways such as riverside pubs where you can enjoy a nice drink. So why not plan a stay and enjoy the county’s waterways up close? Scroll down for a list of the best houseboats in Surrey, UK.

A nice thing about houseboat rentals is that some of them are still capable of letting you visit different sites and attractions without leaving your home away from home. Mississippi is one such rental, so think of it more as an RV but on the water! You can expect well-furnished interiors here, along with a kitchen with a view.

There’s a stove-top oven for making meals and a mini fridge to store your refreshments. The two cabins serve as bedrooms and can sleep two persons each, while the sofa and dining table also convert to a third bed.
