The marina makes you think that you are really on vacation. Busy but not overcrowded :) Great for a casual lunch. Different food options. Some shops.

Such a delightful place to take a walk away from the busy tourist areas. It's pretty busy at lunch time as there are a wide range of restaurants, but at other times there is plenty of space to take a quiet walk. The area has...More

We have often stayed in hotels very close and have friends who keep their boat here but this was the first time we have wandered through. It’s a compact but not cramped or small collection of connected old docks now used for the (probably very...More

Nice area near Tower Bridge. Good for a wander or for food. There are many eateries to choose from although most are chain if you want an independent I think you will have more success over the river in Butlers Wharf.

This is a beautiful area for a stroll around to see the boats, stop for a drink or something to eat. On Friday lunchtimes they have the street food sellers out and they are always busy. There are some good bars and great restaurants!

I did a training course close by and this was s great spot at lunch time. It’s a nice walk and it doesn’t feel like you’re in the centre of London. Plenty of places to eat and drink too

Lovely walk around the docks, nice boats and yachts moored here. Full of places to eat and drink. Dickens Inn is in a lovely building with a bar, pizzeria and a grill restaurant. Opened by Charles Dickens' grandson I think. Good Indian restaurant next door....More

Yes. The docks in itself is great for kids. There are plenty of eateries that are children friendly. The Dock is literally just yards from Tower Bridge and that in itself is well worth a visit with the children. Enjoy.

There are a few shops. They either sell tourist stuff or things for boats. I work a few yards away and the only places worth visiting are eateries.
