Positioned on a peninsula of the river Thames, Surrey Quays is mostly a residential area of Rotherhithe
. Previously known as Surrey Commercial Docks, it adopted its current name from Surrey Quays Shopping Centre which opened in 1988.
The area was derelict for many years following the closure of the working docks, Greenland Dock and South Dock Marina have more of a lifestyle feel to them these days. In 1981 the creation of the London Docklands Development Corporation instigated major redevelopment to the many parts of Rotherhithe peninsula.
Over 5000 brand new homes were developed and ranged from apartment complexes and flats to detached housing and waterside homes. The aforementioned South Dock was also transformed into a marina which is the largest in London, it is now a pleasant place to enjoy a walk.
A second phase of regeneration is underway, known as the ‘Canada Water Masterplan
’, which will bring new facilities to the area including educational, retail, entertainment and office space. This coincides with the development of the Crossrail which will advance the areas connectivity to the rest of London. You can already find overground trains from Surrey Quays Station, the Jubilee Line at Canada Water station links to Canary Wharf
which has links to Crossrail
and the DLR.
There are many schools
which include primary and secondary, special schools, religious schools and grammar schools. Ofsted ratings have been generally positive with many schools attaining ‘good’ and ‘outstanding’ scores.
Exciting new developments and excellent transport links
make Surrey Quays a highly sought place to live. If you’re looking to find out the value of your home, seek to purchase, sell or rent a property then our highly motivated teams would love to help.
Area choice is subjective, staying south of the river you could also consider Bermondsey
or north into Docklands
or west from there into Bow
