Wapping

Wapping is in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, where it hugs the north bank of the River Thames. It is south of Whitechapel and Shadwell and east of Tower Bridge.

Wapping is an ancient area of London that is steeped in history. It has suffered mixed fortunes over the years and went into decline following the Second World War. More recently, it has become a very desirable residential location, due to a huge regeneration project and the construction of a number of luxury riverside developments. Its close proximity to both the City and Canary Wharf has also helped to ensure that property prices are a premium. Some small gardens provide pleasant and surprising diversions to the river frontage and there is an olde worlde feel to the whole area.

When London Overground opens in June 2010 Wapping will be on the line. Otherwise, Tower Hill underground is to the west of Wapping. This is in zone 1 and is on the District and Circle lines. Limehouse is to the east and this is in zone 2, on the DLR.
