Great place to watch the world go by with a good selection of restaurants. A stones through from the Tower of London and a quiet haven in a busy city. If you like daydreaming about owning a yacht and living the high life you will enjoy this interesting historic space

Even on a cold, cloudy, wet day, it is enjoyable to walk through St Katherine Docks, particularly as now more of the eating and drinking places are opening up. The site has a long history, having been a hospital in the 12th century, from which the docks take their name. The docks we see today were built between 1827 and 1828 to designs by Thomas Telford (his only project in London), and warehouse buildings designed by Philip Hardwick, of which one block remains and is currently covered in scaffolding as it is refurbished. After closure as docks in 1968, they were redeveloped, keeping only a few of the original buildings to create a marina, the World Trade Centre and new asset for London with apartments, bars, restaurants and shops, of mixed architectural quality. One of the less successful new buildings is the Tower Hotel, opened in 1973, which is particularly out of context when viewed from the river side, though the views across to Tower Bridge and Butler's Wharf are stunning, even on a grey day. If visiting the Tower, then cut across the road and explore the Docks at the same time.

We spent the weekend in London and we made our way over to St Katherines Dock. The sight of all the boats and mix of old buildings and new contemporary buildings means you could easily be mistaken for being in a more exoctic location. We visited the Dickins Inn and was not disapointed, great food and cold beer with great views. Well worth a visit if you have the time.
