Recently the West India Dock has been home to ships of the German Navy and Super yachts , however today’s visitor is something more unusual.
Yesterday the news channels were reporting on a floating house with garden travelling up and down the Thames, in between its travels it has been berthed at West India Dock.
Airbnb, a home sharing company is behind the publicity stunt of floating a house down the river Thames to celebrate new rules on short term lets in London.
The full size house and garden was created by designers Nick and Steve Tidball who were determined it should be a real house not a stage set. Therefore it has bedrooms and a bathroom, a book collection, a dog kennel, and private garden.
It is not the only publicity stunt that has made its way to West India Dock, in recent years we have had a gigantic inflatable duck and enormous lottery balls.
There is a competition run by Airbnb to stay in the house which bring a whole new meaning to houseboat.
