Wapping is a hidden gem along the River Thames, characterised by cobbed streets and historic buildings including Prospect of Whitby, the oldest riverside pub in London. Warehouse conversions litter the area and provide an aesthetic contrast to the backdrop of modern skyscrapers in the neighbouring City of London (eg. Gerkin), Canary Wharf (HSBC building) and London Bridge (Shard). Professionals are attracted to the area due to its walkable proximity to the City and Canary Wharf.

The area also offers some very fashionable bars and restaurants including Bay Tree Hotel and independent shops including an award winning butcher, grocers and bakery can be found on Wapping lane. At weekends St Katharine Docks is the place to be, with an array of restaurants in a picturesque harbour setting. Sunday ramblers will enjoy the Thames Path walkway which is lined by fantastic pubs. 


Wapping and Canary Wharf consists of characterful warehouse conversions and modern glass fronted riverside apartments. Popular warehouse developments include Oliver’s Wharf and Great Jubilee Wharf providing fantastic riverside views. More modern developments can be found around the glamourous St Katherine Dock. Popular terrace houses are positioned a few streets back from the Thames in areas such as Portland Square - ideal family homes. London Docks will be developed over the next 6 years and create 1,800 new homes which is likely to create more demand for property in the area and push houses prices up, therefore making Wapping a great place to invest.
