St. Katharine Docks, London

4.6
#15 of 186 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.

  • If you're nearby, perhaps at the Tower of London or Tower Bridge, it's best to pass by. The bay is nice, there are also many places to eat. However, losing it is not unforgivable.

  • Great little hidden gem we found after exploring London. One of those quiet little spots you stumble upon and enjoy more than the big touristy things you travel and walk all around for. Awesome if you want to sit on a bench and enjoy people watching. Restaurants and Cafes galore to stop in
  • A lovely oasis in the centre of London. Plenty of secure parking available at reasonable prices and just outside the congestion zone. Next door is Tower Bridge and a short walk to Tower Hill tube station and access to the Underground network. Nice bars restaurants and sightseeing to be had all around this area.
