Estate Agents in Surrey Quays, SE16

Alex Neil have acted as Estate Agents in Surrey Quays, SE16 for over 35 years and are one of the most experienced in the area. Surrey Quays is in the London Borough of Southwark and travel zone 2. The area forms part of a peninsula on the southern side of the River Thames opposite Canary Wharf and is often chosen as an area to live for those working in Canary Wharf.

Rotherhithe Street runs along the perimeter of much of the peninsular and home to many riverside developments and warehouse conversions, Globe Wharf and Canada Wharf are fine examples of the latter. Surrey Quays was previously known as Surrey Commercial Docks and adopted its current name from Surrey Quays Shopping Centre which opened in 1988. The peninsula also encompasses the Rotherhithe area and is adjacent to Bermondsey and Deptford.

The area itself was derelict for many years following the closure of the working docks and both Greenland Dock and South Dock Marina have more of a lifestyle feel to them these days. In 1981 the creation of the London Docklands Development Corporation instigated major redevelopment to many parts of Rotherhithe/Surrey Quays peninsula and the surrounding areas.

Over 5000 brand new homes were developed and they range from apartment complexes and flats to larger townhouses and waterside homes. South Dock itself was also transformed into a marina which is the largest in London, it is now a pleasant place to enjoy a walk. A second phase of regeneration is underway, known as the ‘Canada Water Masterplan’, which will bring new facilities to the area including educational, retail, entertainment and office space. This phase of development is set to compliment and improve the existing retail and commercial infrastructure of the area.

Commute options are plentiful, you can already find over ground trains from Surrey Quays Station, the Jubilee Line at Canada Water station links to Canary Wharf which will further link to Crossrail and the DLR. Canary Wharf workers can also take an aquatic route to work utilising the River Bus options from Greenland Surrey Quays Pier and DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel London - Docklands Riverside.

Stave Hill Ecological Park forms part of Russia Dock Woodland and is looked after as nature reserve for educational and research purposes and a place of recreation. Nearby Southwark Park offers 63 acres of parkland for people to enjoy, Southwark Athletics and Seven Islands Leisure Centre will provide for those seeking health kicks of many types.

Exciting new developments, Jubilee Line connections and being only one stop from Canary Wharf continue to make Surrey Quays a very popular location to live.
