Guidebook: Charring Cross

Recommended Posts

The Thames was the major waterway in London, for nobility and commoners alike, the busiest river of England. Barges went up and down the Thames every day. People selling their wares. Nobles spending leisure time.


The Boathouse


Along the embankment near Charing Cross is a pier that stretches out into the Thames. Here one can rent a rowboat or a barge to navigate the Thames. At the end of the pier is a boathouse that houses the office of Isaac Donaldson, the man who manages the business by day. At night, there is a watchman to look after the boats, though Isaac is known to rent out the boathouse at night for intimate private parties.


Cost to rent a rowboat for an afternoon is one shilling. A barge is five shillings.
