The Isle of Dogs is a small (maybe ridiculously named) piece of land that sticks out into the Thames. It is London's financial heart, a neighbourhood build up of steel and glass. The Isle of Dogs is mostly fabulously wealthy. Housing on the Isle of Dogs is expensive, as most of it is within a very short work of many of London's financial institutions. Expect to pay around £150-220 per week for a room. Most properties in the area are either old Victorian terraces or swanky riverside apartments. Living on the Isle of Dogs is convenient for students of Greenwich University, Queen Mary University, and the University of East London. It is well served by the many stations on the Docklands Light Railways such as: West India Quay, Heron Quay, South Quay, Crossharbour, Mudchute and Island Gardens, as well as stations like Canary Wharf (DLR/Jubilee).
The Yuppie rules the Isle of Dogs. Expect all your neighbours to be of the rich, suited, banker variety.
The Isle of Dogs is also the traditional home of Millwall Football Club. One the most hated and infamous clubs in the country, they play in nearby New Cross. No one likes them and they don't care.
You'll fall in love with all the dramatic views of the Isle's monuments to banking and modern capitalism.
Terribly - or terrifically rich.
