Docklands Area Guide & Local Information: London Docklands has contributed substantially to the historical and current prosperity of London as a city. Docklands stretches from St Katharine Dock in Wappingeast through Limehouse and Canary Wharf to Royal Docks north of the River Thames and from Tower Bridge through Shad Thames, Surrey Quays and Rotherhithe to the south. Prosperous trading wharves and docks expanded development and increased population numbers during Georgian and Victorian times. These trend increases are still mirrored but with different driving forces today.

The demise of the working docks in the area was stimulated by advances in shipping and the introduction of larger container ships. Their requirement for deep-water docking facilities saw the end of Docklands’ central docks as the industry moved away to deep-water ports. As a result, docklands fell into decline and remained neglected until the government created the London Development Corporation (LDDC), massive redevelopment commenced, and change across Docklands ignited.

Docklands today epitomises high-rise development and modern architecture for commercial and residential properties. The area is home to Canary Wharf and the other magnificent towers in Canada Square, which house many powerhouse financial businesses. In addition, well-known developers have added many new luxury developments and residential communities to the ever-growing skyline of Canary Wharf and Docklands.

Docklands has benefited multiple times from investment in transport infrastructure and is very well served. Public transport options are abundant, ranging from London Buses to Cable Cars over the River Thames, and journey planning commutes and leisure is easy.

The immense variety of properties, waterside locations, shopping options, leisure activities and transport choices make Docklands a very convenient and popular location. However, if you are curious about the value of your property in Docklands and need an estate agent in Docklands, our local office looks forward to helping you.
