London Docklands is the name for the riverfront and former docks in London, capital of the United Kingdom, based around east and south east London respectively. It forms part of the boroughs of Southwark, Tower Hamlets, Lewisham, Newham and Greenwich. The docks were formerly part of the Port of London, at one time the world's largest port. They have now been redeveloped principally for commercial and residential use. The name London Docklands was used for the first time in a government report on redevelopment plans in 1971 and has since become virtually universally adopted. It also created conflict between the new and old communities of the London Docklands.
Docklands is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.
