About
Iconic St Katharine Docks is Central London's only marina and has evolved into a thriving waterside community featuring modern and unusual office space, luxury homes and quayside dining and shopping. A stone's throw from the Tower of London, the site has a fascinating history. Opening in 1828, the Thomas Telford-designed dock was once one of the busiest ports in the UK, renowned for handling luxury goods, sugar, rum, spices, perfumes, wines and tea. Today, St Katharine Docks is home to a range of leading companies and brands including tech incubator Rainmaking Loft, Tom's Kitchen, CAU, Bravas Tapas and artisan coffee shop White Mulberries. Every Friday, the Docks hosts the popular World Food Market, serving some of the capital's best street food.

Perfect stop

Is in St Katharine docks, visit Kilikya for coffee or for a glass of wine served in a very fancy wine glass. Perfect views over the yachts.

Lovely area

This a lovely peaceful spot by the side of the tower. It reminds me of The Albert docks in Liverpool. Lots of restaurants and bars and some amazing yachts in the marina

Locked Out.
Oct 2021
Currently subject to maintenance ongoing at the inner lock gate, the basin is blockaded and vessels are stuck inside until work is complete. The atmosphere is thereby substantially reduced. Tourists are put off by the barriers and progress of the works so footfall is much less. Cafes and bars are open but the whole place is quiet and appears deserted. Once the lock is up and running again the vibe hopefully will return to pre lockdown levels.

Don't miss the Thames River Festival!
Sep 2021
I visited St. Katherine's Dock to attend the Thames River Festival. The festival included many boats that took part in the Dunkirk evacuation providing a priceless view of modern British history. Tourists can also board some of the boats.

Give this a miss

Just asked for a table in this restaurant with only 2 tables taken. Did we have reservation, fair enough we didn't but abrupt cold and rude experience. Front of house needs training in being pleasant and friendly. I have never written a review before but felt this is needed. Great shame lovely restaurant position.sorry if I was the proprietor I would be very concerned

Really very good
Apr 2021
Went for lunch with friends as a celebration of outdoor dining restarting. Ended up at Zizzis because they were able to accommodate us. Perfect in every way, great location, food, service and value for money. It’s not easy doing well in a chain brand but this place does is all. Thanks to everyone.
