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.Arrange your visit to Docklands and discover more family-friendly attractions in London using our London itinerary maker.

We love the area of Shad Thames and over the river to Wapping. Canary Wharf is also good to explore.
