Docklands, London

(3.9/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web)
London Docklands is the name for an area in east and southeast London, England. It forms part of the boroughs of Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Lewisham, Newham and Greenwich. The docks were formerly part of the Port of London, at one time the world's largest port. They have now been redeveloped principally for commercial and residential use. The name London Docklands was used for the first time in a government report on redevelopment plans in 1971 but has since become virtually universally adopted. It also created conflict between the new and old communities of the London Docklands.

  • This district is located in the South-East London. In the past century, the area was upgraded. Walked around the area in the evening, all very nicely highlighted. The district is actively growing, now there's a lot of skyscrapers

  • It was a large slum area with old dilapidated warehouses, which with 80-ies of the 20 century could not bring to mind. As a result, Doklendz was almost completely demolished and rebuilt to the London 2012 Olympic Games a year and allowed the DLR-automated driverless metro. Now there are many new buildings for the middle class, all very decent-looking and I would even say sweet-home as from the directory property. They say the British housing demand not enjoyed, and foreigners willingly snapping up apartments. Good ride on Thames water boat and consider everything with water-impression you can draw up a.

  • A large area, it is unclear where the beginning and the ending. Previously derelict and past capital renovation. And even before then the territory of one of the largest ports in the world. The old atmosphere has not survived, but new is not bad.
