St. Katherine's Dock

St. Katherine's Dock E1
Tower Hill

Built originally in the 1820s by Thomas Telford, St. Katherine's Dock used to enjoy a leading position among all the dock areas as a result of its proximity to the City of London. As time went on, though, St. Katherine's Dock declined, along with all of London's docklands. Today, as part of the massive London Docklands renewal effort, the area is enjoying new life. St. Katherine's Dock offers fashionable houses, restaurants, shops and luxury yacht moorings, and its up-market atmosphere has become a powerful magnet for visitors who want to experience the London that lies outside the familiar West End. The Dicken Inn, located in a converted 18th century wood-framed brewery, is a popular watering hole to visit while enjoying a pleasant day's walk around the dock.
