Originally built in 1855, Royal Docks was once London’s gateway to international trade and the largest enclosed docks in the world. Today, this vast area is one of the country’s most exciting regeneration stories, re-emerging as a unique waterfront focal point for business and culture and an energizing place to live.
Carrying forward its industrial heritage, it’s a place with a real spirit of innovation and invention. As the capital’s only Enterprise Zone, plus being the site of an expanding airport and an international exhibitions centre, the area is becoming a world-renowned commercial district and visitor destination.
And there’s always been a strong sense of community — even more so now as it’s the youngest and most diverse area in London. The growing collection of amenities reflects that energy. You can enjoy anything, from art to sport or family activities to world-class conferences. You can find fantastic food from every corner of the globe, ride the capital’s only cable car, or explore a riverside park beside 250 acres of water. And it’s only getting better, with a full pipeline of plans and opportunities to anticipate.
