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 over a decade following the closure of the docks. However, in 1981 the creation of the London Docklands Development Corporation caused major redevelopment to the area. Over 5000 brand new homes were developed and ranged from apartment complexes and flats to detached housing and waterside homes. South Dock was also transformed into a marina which is the largest in London.
A second phase of regeneration is underway, known as the ‘Canada Water Masterplan’, which will bring new facilities to the town centre 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 shopping centre, the Jubilee Line at Canada Water station, and several bus routes.
