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.
