WAPPING

Rubbing shoulders with the Tower, Wapping has a unique offbeat charm and living in Wapping places you equidistant between the City and Canary Wharf.

With its cobbled streets, red-brick buildings, and Dickensian feel, Wapping is one of London's most atmospheric riverside areas known as the Covent Garden of the East End. On the North bank of the River Thames, between Tower Bridge and Limehouse, it sits along the wilder, more expansive stretch of the river.

Wapping is steeped in history, it was once home to seafarers and sailors, having been a significant dockland, a secure area to unload ships and a critical maritime spot for hundreds of years.

Wapping has a good quota of destination pubs. It is home to one of London’s oldest pubs, The Prospect of Whitby. Dating back to 1543s, it was a former meeting place for smugglers, sailors, cut-throats and footpads. Next to the pub are Pelican Stairs leading to the Thames where there's a replica of the old Execution Dock. Wapping Old Stairs is where condemned pirates were chained to a post to drown as the tide rose. On a cheerier note this was also where returning sailors were met by their sweethearts after a voyage.

During World War II, the area was devastated. Regeneration commenced in the Eighties, and the warehouses were restored to their former glory and turned into desirable trendy riverside lofts.

A fascinating mixture of contemporary and historic buildings may be found here. The high-spec apartments are peppered with Georgian properties. The spacious warehouse and factory conversions are very much in demand and popular with City workers and families, creating a growing sense of community.  The wharfs are the finest properties in Wapping notably Olivers Wharf along with Wapping Wall. Set back from the river are '50s and '60s local authority housing blocks, as well as more recent '80s housing towards St Katharine Dock, Shadwell Basin and Tobacco Dock.

Wapping is sprinkled with green spaces and Wapping Woods and King Edward Memorial Park can be found on the other side of the river in East London.

Wilton Music Hall has been classified as the world’s last surviving great music halls offering a plethora of entertainment, including drama, music, comedy, and film. Wapping is a quick walk from the South Bank, where you will find the London Eye and a great variety of museums, galleries, festivals, and exhibitions.

With its village like atmosphere, you will find a butcher, baker, post office, coffee shop, and green grocer as well as a Waitrose.

Wapping is well-connected transport-wise, with Wapping Overground Station and Shadwell DLR connecting the area with the rest of East London and South London. At the same time, the nearby Tower Hill Underground Station serves both the District and Circle Lines. A journey from Tower Hill to Embankment takes around nine minutes, while Mile End would take just 7 minutes.
