Exploring London’s Royal Docks

London’s Royal Docks

London’s Royal Docks consist of four areas, each with its own characteristics and with attractions and facilities to appeal to locals, tourists and business communities. Great days out, business parks, sporting events, restaurants and bars and stunning residential developments – you’ll find them all along this vibrant stretch of the Thames.


Pontoon Dock

Once a busy trading post, Pontoon Dock is returning to its commercial roots as the business heart of London’s Royal Docks. The iconic Millennium Mills building is being transformed into much-envied apartments, whilst this whole area known as Silvertown will become the site of one of London’s most exciting and innovative regeneration projects.

In the meantime this area is a popular filming location -you can spot Pontoon Dock in the Bond film, The World Is Not Enough or if you look really closely it is the backdrop for the major action scene in Full Metal Jacket.

King George V Dock

Located on one side of London City Airport, here you can watch planes destined for cities all over the UK and Europe as well as those heading to New York.
