Guide to living in Wapping

Wapping is a hidden gem along the River Thames, with charming cobbled streets and historic buildings including Prospect of Whitby, the oldest riverside pub in London, dating back to 1520. Professionals are often attracted to the area because it is within walking distance to both the City and Canary Wharf.

About Wapping

Warehouse conversions abound in the area, providing a contrast to the backdrop of modern skyscrapers in the neighbouring areas; from here, you can see the ‘Gherkin’ in the City of London, the HSBC building in Canary Wharf, and the Shard on the South Bank. Professionals are often attracted to the area because it is within walking distance to both the City and Canary Wharf.

Properties in Wapping

Wapping features 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 glamorous St Katherine Dock.

Popular terrace houses are positioned a few streets back from the Thames in areas such as Portland Square, and make ideal family homes. London Docks will be developed over the next six years, creating 1,800 new homes. This is likely to create more demand for property in the area and push houses prices up, making Wapping a great place to invest.
