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.

  • 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.

  • It is an area that has been transformed along the Bank of the River Thames. Old warehouses have been restored and converted into lofts and trendy restaurants. Can walk is along the paseo coastal. Original way to demonstrate as a city is recycled.

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