Highlighted by the Sunday Times in 2019 as a Top 10 Place to Live in London. Isle of Dogs is in the London borough of Tower Hamlets, part of the Docklands region and is perfectly placed for the financial, commercial and retail district of Canary Wharf One Canada Square.

The River Thames meanders around the Isle of Dogs in a horseshoe shape. Map images of which appear in the credits of popular television show "EastEnders", the area's distinctive shape is instantly recognisable. With the area’s close proximity to Canary Wharf, diners, revellers and shoppers can choose from modern establishments that surround One Canada Square. Or if you prefer options with a longer history, perhaps "The Gun" fits the bill or alternatively "The Old Fire Station" a bistro bar situated on Westferry Road, an obvious clue to its history is in the latter’s name.

Historically the Isle of Dogs area was important and a key element of the London shipping trade. Many buildings were destroyed during World War II and the docks finally closed in the 1970s. To boost the prosperity of area the London Docklands Development Corporation was created and during the 1980's, massive regeneration commenced attracting both business and people. The area was complimented with a substantially improved transport infrastructure with the arrival of the Jubilee Line and Docklands Light Railway.

Today, there are excellent transport links with Travelcard Zone 2 DLR Stations connecting the Isle of Dogs to the rest of London and London City Airport is located in the nearby Royal Docks. Canary Wharf station can be reached by various DLR stations on the island which opens access to the Jubilee Line and soon the Elizabeth Line as part of the Crossrail project which will greatly reduce journey times.

There are three notable green spaces at the bottom of the Isle of Dogs, Mudchute Park and Farm, Millwall Park and Island Gardens. The latter is small riverside park that hosts the entrance to the Greenwich Foot Tunnel which provides pedestrianised access under the river arising near Cutty Sark in Greenwich. Isle of Dogs is popular with those seeking river and dockside living with DLR connections. The area’s direct proximity to Canary Wharf and the businesses that reside there has also influenced many to buy or let property here.
