Over recent decades, redevelopment has turned Docklands into a vibrant business hub with a unique character. In addition to huge commercial buildings with office space and executive suites for a range of businesses, the area also offers residential lettings to accommodate the multitude of workers. The Docklands is also home to many fascinating attractions that will keep you entertained. You can explore the restored vessel, the Cutty Sark, pay a visit to Mudchute Park and Farm, take in the exhibits at the Museum of the Docklands, or see where Henry VIII was baptised at St Alfege’s Church.
Housing major business parks such as Canary Wharf, Docklands is home to a range of businesses, many of which are financial providers.
