WAPPING

Known as the ‘Covent Garden of the East End’, Wapping, with its cobbled streets, red-brick buildings, and Dickensian feel, is one of London’s most atmospheric riverside areas. Located on the north side of the Thames between Tower Bridge and Limehouse, it sits along the wilder, more expansive stretch of the river.

Steeped in history, it was once home to seafarers and sailors, having been a significant docklands and a critical maritime spot for hundreds of years. Then came World War II, and the area was devastated. Still, regeneration commenced in the Eighties, and the warehouses were restored to their former glory and turned into desirable trendy riverside lofts.  Wapping is also home to one of London’s oldest pubs, The Prospect of Whitby, dating back to 1543.

With an abundance of high-spec apartments (and the occasional houseboat,) it is popular with City workers and families alike - creating a growing sense of community. The spacious warehouse conversions to be found here are very much in demand.

Wapping is well-connected transport-wise, with Wapping Overground Station and Shadwell DLR connecting the area with the rest of East London and into South London. At the same time, 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.
