Overview

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.

This place is situated just near the Tower bridge and is relatively quieter. There are so many boats, yatchs etc and is very scenic. Many restaurants around to grab a quick bite.

St Katharine's dock is almost hidden behind the not-so-pretty Guoman Hotel that looks straight out onto Tower Bridge. Here you will find several very scenic marinas linked by footbridges and bordered by many cafes, bars and restaurants - some familiar chains like Café Rouge, but...More

There’s something fascinating about the old East End docks, probably because they’re authentic, rather than a purpose-built marina. St Katherine’s is wonderful: we have been many times over the years. There are plenty of shops, cafes and restaurants. But for us, it’s more interesting and...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.
