Why Royal Docks?

The Beating Heart of The East

Zip along the Elizabeth line to reach London’s leading financial district in 3-minutes. Or take a short stroll along the riverside. There are over 300 shops, cafés, bars and restaurants here, across five malls. Get fitted for a new designer suit at Cabot Place Mall. Sample delicious seafood on the waterfront. Climb to one of the many rooftop terraces, and finish your day with a zingy cocktail – with views of Cabot Square’s towering fountain. And if you’re one of the 120,000 who work in the area – enjoy the blissfully easy commute.

A Thriving Waterside Community

There’s nothing quite like the calm, fresh river breeze along the waterfront. Dive into open -water swimming and discover a world of watersports. Get involved in sailing, rowing, and wakeboarding right outside your door. And there’s no shortage of buzz, as the Royal Docks also plays host to major sports events including Formula E and the London Triathlon.

For a calmer day out, there’s no shortage of sunny waterside ambles, thanks to 18-kilometres of river and dock frontage. Wander between the cafés and bars dotted around the neighbourhood. Or saunter past the new City Hall, where the Mayor of London works. There’s still plenty to come, thanks to a £314m investment plan to bring more cultural and sporting events to the area.

Across the water – a short trip on the Emirates Air Line – lies Greenwich Peninsula. Here, you’ll find The O2. It’s one of the world’s largest shopping and entertainment complexes, with regular performances from the biggest names in entertainment. Plus, retail therapy is only 9-minutes away at Westfield Stratford. It’s Europe’s biggest mall, with over 320 shops and restaurants. For those who like a flutter, it’s also home to the UK’s largest casino.
