Estate Agents in Canada Water, SE16

Alex Neil have acted as Estate Agents in Canada Water, SE16 for over 35 years and are one of the most experienced in the area. Canada Water is within the Rotherhithe and Surrey Quays peninsula and home to a Jubilee Line Station just one-stop from Canary Wharf. The area is within the London Borough of Southwark and it forms part of Docklands south of the river.

Historically and appropriately named ‘Canada Water’ as ships arriving at the docks here hailed from Canada. Nowadays the area surrounding the water is a mixture of residential and commercial buildings centred around a retail area and Canada Water Station.

Canada Water, Surrey Quays and Rotherhithe all hold nautical, architectural and innovative construction history. The Mayflower ship started its historic voyage to America from nearby Rotherhithe in 1620. Its namesake, one of the oldest, if not the oldest pubs in London, The Mayflower is still popular with visitors and locals to this day.

Despite the engineering and logistical challenges Brunel created the first under river tunnel in the world running from nearby Rotherhithe to Wapping. It was opened to the public in 1843 and remains a vital link between north and south riverbanks today.

Much of the area is now going through a phase of rapid development to create a new urban centre from the redevelopment proposals of the Canada Water Master Plan. There will also be up to 3,500 new homes delivered offering affordable homes, a range of housing types, tenures, sizes and price points. There will also be significant new public space for play, events and external dining, and you can already find Surrey Quays Shopping Centre a few minutes away.

Commuting and travelling around London from Canada Water is simple, the Jubilee Line is in Zone 2 and opens fast connections to Stratford, Canary Wharf, Westminster and Bond Street. There is also local access to river bus services from both Greenland Surrey Quays Pier and DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London - Docklands Riverside. London City Airport can be reached in around 20 minutes by car and by rail utilising the Jubilee Line and Docklands Light Rail to London City Airport station.

With ongoing development and improvements to infrastructure, retail options and fantastic links to Canary Wharf, Canada Water is very desirable.
