London Docklands has contributed much to the historic wealth and success of London, the area stretches from St Katharine Dock in Wapping all the way east through Limehouse and Isle of Dogs to Royal Docks north of the river and through Rotherhithe to the south. These prospering trading wharfs and docks created expansion of building and population during Georgian and Victorian periods.

Advances in shipping and the introduction of larger container ships brought the requirement of deep-water docking facilities which saw an end to Docklands’ major docks, the industry moved away to deep-water ports. The area fell into decline, neglected until the government created the London Development Corporation (LDDC) and massive redevelopment and change began.

Docklands today epitomises high rise development both commercial and residential, from Canary Wharf and the other magnificent towers in Canada Square house many powerhouse financial businesses. Many well-known developers have added new developments and residential communities to the ever-growing skyline.
