St. Katharine Docks, London

4.6
#18 of 159 in Parks in London
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.

  • A nice place to chill out during weekend, I like the Italia style restaurant , nice crispy pizza is served there. Views towards Tower Bridge are beautiful. The place is famous to tourist so sometimes is a bit overcrowded. But overall its a good place to have a bite and few drinks.
  • Wonderful. More Brighton than just off Tower Bridge. I felt very much at home. Great place to visit. Full of interesting things.
  • A lovely peaceful yacht berthing dock. Fabulous boats and yachts. Lovely pub called " The Charles Dickens ". Good food served.
  • Saint Katharine Docks is an oasis on the border of The City that surprisingly few long-time Londoners know of. Whether this is because of the high surrounding buildings or the locals trying to keep it a secret, I can't say. What I know for sure is the Docks offer a peaceful maritime refuge with few rivals.
  • Beautiful place which is very near to Tower Bridge which is not fully explored by the tourists. This place offers wonderful view of the Thames River and Tower Bridge. There are small restaurants and eateries at the Bank where you can sip a drink and have food. This place is very nice place to visit during summers. Katherine docks has lots of office spaces, restaurants, pubs and party places. And the most important of all...U can find so many beautiful yatches of various sizes and models parked. It’s amazing view to watch these yatches. Many of the yatches are the personal ones while some, as I understand is available on hire.
