Venture around central London’s only marina at St Katharine Docks. The site has an interesting history; once a historic dock dating back to 1828, the area came under heavy fire during "the Blitz" and the docks were left virtually destroyed after WWII. After their closure in 1968, the docks underwent an extensive redevelopment project, which was completed in the 1990s. Today, the area provides office spaces, luxury waterside homes, a yachting marina, restaurants, and bars. Enjoy exploring this elegant and surprisingly peaceful part of the city and finish off with a drink overlooking the marina.

  • Hidden gem. Lovely views of the tower bridge from here. Houses a lot of upscale restaurants and is an expensive parking lot for all the wonderful boats. Nice to walk around during the night and enjoy a great photo spot of the tower bridge.
  • Loved the views! it's close to many other famous locations and is quietly tucked away in the middle of London. If you're a fan of boats then it's worth checking out. A surprising number of restaurants and shops can be located in the area - definitely worth checking out
  • Very unexpected. You wouldn't think this would exist in the spot it does. Quite a few large yachts as well as many sailboats. The docks themselves have a few nice places to eat, cafes, and a put. Worth the visit. Right by tower bridge.
  • Great place for an afternoon walk or a lunch at the multitude of waterside cafes and restaurants. Friday lunchtime there's a food market with tasty bites from international cuisines - from Peru to Paris to Peking. In spring there's usually a kind of an open day event for boats, where public are invited aboard some of the vessels to have a look.
  • Such a beautiful place I'm East London. Really hard to find on foot! not much parking on the weekend annoyingly!
