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.

  • Took a nice stroll along here. Although busy, and considering the location, it was strangely peaceful. Plenty pf places to eat/drink close by and lots of places to sit and watch the comings and goings on the river and view Tower Bridge. Very good transport links.
  • A delightful Marina near Tower Bridge. Ano opportunity to have a pleasant walk round the marina over several bridges that lift to let the boats pass. Secluded with a lively mix of restaurants and the charming Dickens Inn with it's impressive wooden frontage.
  • It's a marina redeveloped from old dock land replacing the fisherman's boats with business mans yatchs. Being not too famous as a tourist destination St Katherines docks has a charm of its own. A stones throw from Tower bridge but free from the touristy rush, it's a Riverside location for those looking for some quiet time. The plethora of food vendors offering hot international food right off the grill in front of you adds to the lure. No wonder it's popular with local office goers for a well earned lunch break. Off late the London On Water annual event has brought the docks more attention
  • I walk along here in the summer on my lunch break and it's just what's needed during a hard day's work. The views are beautiful, Its just nice to see everyone with sunglasses on strolling in a good mood along the dock. There's lots of places around there to eat and enjoy
  • Iconic marina. The staff always tries to help berth owners, if they need. Beautiful places, nice restaurants and shops around, happy atmosphere... It's always a pleasure to go there!
