Business in the Docklands
The London Docklands is a sprawling area in east and southeast London. It includes portions of Greenwich, Lewisham, Newham, Southwark and Tower Hamlets along the River Thames. The Docklands were once part of the Port of London, which at one point was the largest port in the world. Much of the area has seen significant redevelopment with new residential and commercial projects, including Tobacco and St Katharine Docks.
Many of the Docklands' former wharfs and warehouses have disappeared, although some have been restored and converted into new uses. The docks have also been transformed into recreational marinas. Most of the redevelopment in the Docklands has focused on new residential projects, with some exceptions like the Isle of Dogs and Canary Wharf.
Office Buildings in the Docklands
One of the area's most important business clusters is the financial services sector based at Canary Wharf, which is the largest employment centre in the Docklands. Canary Wharf was built on the site of the West India Docks, which operated from 1802 until 1980. Many of the UK's tallest office buildings are concentrated within the Canary Wharf area, which is the capital's second major financial and business centre along with the City.
One Canada Square is the tallest of the skyscrapers at Canary Wharf. HSBC, Barclays, Citibank, RBC, and many other firms have offices in the area. Herons Quay in the Canary Wharf area also has a cluster of office towers.
The north side of Canary Wharf is also being developed as part of the North Quay project, which will add three new towers. In total, more than 16 million square feet of office accommodation within 37 buildings is found at Canary Wharf.
While Canary Wharf is largely focused on financial services, businesses from a variety of sectors are found throughout the Docklands. Other office spaces suitable for businesses in virtually any sector are found at Tobacco Dock between the Tower of London and Canary Wharf. In addition to exhibition and event spaces, Tobacco Dock has flexible coworking spaces for start-up and established companies. Office spaces are housed in a Grade I listed waterside complex and supports over a hundred businesses.
St Katharine Dock is centred around Central London's only marina. The redeveloped dock includes office and retail spaces. Dating back to 1828, St Katharine Dock is located opposite the Tower of London. Like Tobacco Dock, office spaces at St Katharine Dock are housed in converted warehouses.
About the Docklands
The London Docklands sit east of the City of London. They are largely found north of the River Thames from Tower Bridge to Woolwich. Following the Second World War, many of the docks were closed and filled to make way for new development. The Docklands Light Railway (DLR) connects most of the area. Much of the computer-controlled line is over ground and elevated, providing views of the surrounding area.
Beyond the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf, attractions in the Docklands include the Museum of London's Docklands. The museum is housed in a converted nineteenth century warehouse on West India Quay. The Limehouse Basin is a starting point for trails along Regent's Canal, while Tower Bridge and the Tower of London at the western edge of the Docklands provide a gateway to the area.
