St Katharine Docks, London
(4.6/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • It's a stunning little spot right on the edge of the Thames. We had a meal here at Mala and a few drinks in the Dickens Inn. I walked around the corner to get some photos of the nearby Tower Bridge. I...  more »

  • The docks are In close proximity to major London tourist attractions.Pleasant and colourful but regrettably handicapped by adjoining the grey and forbidding brutalism of The Tower Hotel Complex and a dearth of footfall resulting in an enervated and autumnal ambience that pervades part of the environs. Oodles of potential here to reinvent as a top drawer destination. Certainly worth visiting.
  • Amazing place. Looks like you are in a sea side. They have a lovely market there. With a variaty of food. And a pub, that was packed. The outside decoration is amazing.
  • Nice docks a minute away from Tower and Tower Bridge. Enjoy the view from one of the little cafes or restaurants around the docks. If you are lucky, you can spot the Queen's row barge, Gloriana in the docks.
  • You can have a soulful walk here. No crowd. Secluded. Good variety of options for food and entertainment.
  • Relaxing area. Good for a walk or to visit a restaurant. Despite its proximity to nearby sights, this place isn't rammed with tourists.
