St. Katharine Docks

Built originally in the 1820s by Thomas Telford, St. Katharine Docks used to enjoy a leading position among all the dock areas as a result of its proximity to the City of London. However, as time went on, St. Katharine Docks declined, along with all of London's docklands. As part of the massive London Docklands renewal effort, many of the original dockland buildings have now been converted and refurbished and St. Katharine Docks is today a busy commercial, residential and leisure centre. The Dickens Inn, located in a converted 18th century wood-framed brewery, is a popular watering hole to visit while enjoying a pleasant day's walk around the dock.
