Giving the impression of being a village within a city, serviced apartments in Limehouse give you the perfect mix of modern apartments and historical buildings, wrapped around a dock of canal and leisure boats. Cobble streets are not uncommon, and feature many more charming features that help reflect its maritime heritage. You will notice that in this part of London (extending out to the Docklands, Greenwich, and Wapping) is a breath of fresh air away from the Victorian tones of other boroughs. Once a dockers paradise, the area is now an attractive part of town that runs parallel to the River Thames, a stylish haven that pays homage to its past in a form of corporate accommodation in Limehouse.
Once a rugged docking base, the area has undergone huge transformation since the last boat left port in the 1980’s. Everywhere you turn there seems to be some kind of reference to it’s past, whether it’s the cobbled streets, building fascias or even one of its famous pubs - The Grapes pub, established in 1583, has been the scene of Walter Raleigh setting off on a voyage and a survivor of the Blitz. Today it offers fantastic views along the river and brags Sir Ian McKellan as one of its owners! The area also offers plenty of options for those looking for places to stay in Limehouse, as well as famous places to shop - big brands such as Austin Reed, Wallis, Next, Gap, Fat Face, French Connection and Cecil Gee all readily available. Don’t forget to wander around Billingsgate Market - famous for selling fish!
Limehouse has its very own DLR station that connects Canary Wharf to the east, Greenwich to the south, and Tower Bridge/Bank to the west. These transport connections make the neighbourhood especially popular with finance and insurance professionals, who enjoy aa leisurely commute to the offices in either Canary Wharf or The City. Due to the nature of the area - especially Wapping and Canary Wharf - cycling is a very popular method of transport. Santander bikes can be picked up from a number of locations at a very reasonable cost, and is probably the most efficient way to travel the streets!
