Estate and letting agents Isle of Dogs

Referred to as ‘The Island’ by locals, framed by the Thames on three sides, and with a large City Farm in the middle, the Isle of Dogs is a fabulous mixture of docks, donkeys and ducks (but strangely not that many dogs).

During its maritime past, the area was once a murky wasteland, but it has since been transformed into the second largest financial district in London. Although not really an island, the distinctive horseshoe shape of the Isle of Dogs is bounded by the Thames on three sides. You can find a variety of properties here, from luxury contemporary developments and warehouse conversions to Victorian terraces and town houses.

Fulfilling your lifestyle aspirations…

Set in a converted church, The Space is a performing arts centre that hosts a variety of events and performances, with an exciting programme of music, theatre, dance and comedy. They also offer weekly performance workshops for children and adults, as well as training in arts administration and technical theatre.

Being so close to so much water, there are plenty of water-related activities to try on what locals call ‘The Island’. One of the best places to start is the Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre, where you can find accredited windsurfing, canoeing, sailing and powerboat training courses.

Located in the middle of the Isle of Dogs on 32 acres of countryside, Mudchute Park and Farm is one of Europe’s largest inner-city farms. Open 7 days a week and with no admission fee, the farm is home to over 100 animals, including a collection of British rare breeds. There is also an equestrian centre, a café serving home-cooked food and they regularly hold a variety of events and courses.

If you’re looking for somewhere special for weekend brunch, then why not visit Plateau? You can enjoy the views across Canary Wharf whilst you indulge in their menu of contemporary French cuisine. Coffee connoisseurs will enjoy a trip to Taylor St. at South Quay, where they curate some of the best coffees in the world, and also serve a selection of homemade cakes, artisan sandwiches and hot breakfasts.

Getting around

There are a number of DLR stations on the Isle of Dogs, including Canary Wharf, Heron Quays, South Quay, Crossharbour, Mudchute and Island Gardens. The Jubilee Line serves the area (the nearest Tube station is Canary Wharf), as do a number of bus routes, including the 135, 277, D3, D6, D7, D8, and N550.

What our clients say

“I had a nice experience renting a house with George. Since the first moment of viewing to signing the contract, he made it so easy. I can truly recommend him as an estate agent if you want to rent the property quickly.”

Adam Demkow

“I've inquired about 10 properties at this point, and Vanessa has been by far the best agent I've worked with. I really appreciate her responsiveness, help getting answers to our questions, and overall attitude, I wish all agents were more like her, so thank you for all your help so far!”

Noah Levenson

“Gary is an excellent manager, who always helped with various issues that arise during the time we were renting through Franklyn James. We had several things that we wanted to change in the flat and Gary helped to communicate those to landlord and achieve the outcome that was satisfactory for both parties. During the final checkout and deposit return, Gary has quickly settled any remaining questions with the landlord and deposit monies were returned promptly. Thank you very much for all your help!”
