Premier Letting Agents in Wapping London E1


Area Comments

One of the best-developed and most traditional stepping stones for the City and Docklands workers looking for convenience and a high standard of living on the river, Wapping has been into the 'plush urban living' habit longer than anywhere else in the capital.

Heavily bombed in the war, Wapping was largely a ghost town until the 80s property boom and the beginnings of life in the Docklands area, and the influx of City and Docklands workers. It's a tangle of seriously urban streets, although there are great resources which make it more than merely a jungle of buildings - there's an excellent sports centre, several gardens, and of course superb dining and drinking options around the area, particularly overlooking the river and around the lovely regenerated St Katharine's Docks.

Though there are still businesses in the area, Wapping is mostly high-end residential space, mostly for individuals or couples: this isn't really a popular place for families.

Despite Hoxton and Shoreditch's pretentions to the crown, the loft-living, industrial space apartment revolution that overtook London's postindustrial areas began in Wapping. The huge warehouses and factories that line these streets (some with evocative names reminiscent of London's trading past - Cinnamon Street, in particular, Tobacco Dock, Rum Close, Brewhouse Lane) were swiftly turned into at times truly opulent apartments, and it is these that Wapping is known for. These are plush, very desirable apartments, superbly fitted and perfect for the high-living, demanding and well heeled bankers, traders and lawyers who are their target market. The most desirable, of course, are those directly on the river.

Perfect for anyone working in the area, a great alternative to Docklands or Canary Wharf, and more upmarket than Shad Thames or Limehouse.
