St Katharine Docks, London

4.6
#18 of 102 in Parks in London
Marina Gift & Specialty Shop
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.

  • Beautiful place to spend your evening after work for a quick drink or a good food at many of the famous restaurants. Must visit dickens inn for a good drink with a beautiful view of the docks Just walking distance from London Bridge.
  • This is absolutely class. I got an opportunity to spend some time on one of the boats on St. Katherine's and it was out of this world. A tremendous experience that I thoroughly enjoyed. ☺😁
  • Great venue of restaurants, bars and the harbour. All right next to Tower Bridge. Very crowded early eves on nice days.
  • 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.
  • Not crowded picturesque place, near Tower Bridge. During the day it is rather indifferent. But as the daylight goes, it it transformed by the buildings lighting onto a marvellous scenic, that craves for photographing. Either way you have to see for yourself to find out what attracts you more. Recommended.

Where to stay in London

Many of London's main attractions are spread out, so nearby public transportation is key. There is no downtown area as such in London, and some of the least expensive hotels have more convenient access to tourist sites than the costlier ones. For a quintessential London experience, consider staying in the West End. This part of town offers excellent theaters, historical sites, and eating and shopping options for every taste. Lodging won’t be cheap, but you’ll have the colorful variety of London life right at your doorstep. Look at Notting Hill or Chelsea for charming and less expensive boutique hotels and B&Bs.
