Welcome to St Katharine's & Wapping

London, United Kingdom

Wapping and St Katharine's is a very green and modern neighbourhood by the Thames. Just south of Shadwell and Whitechapel in East London, these docklands still have many sailors' pubs. The area contains the Tower of London as well as St. Katharine's Dock.

Housing in Wapping can be towards the cheaper end of the London market. Many rooms in either shared properties or converted warehouse flats can go for as little as £120 a week with bills included. Prices can rise considerably in some of the cooler flats, but expect to pay no more than £200 a week. Most properties are either in terraced houses or converted warehouses along the docks.

Living in Wapping is convenient for studying at Greenwich University, Queen Mary University and Goldsmiths as well as for commuting to universities in the city centre. In terms of transport, it is connected to the wider city by Wapping Station (Overground) or a 15 minute walk from nearby stations like Shadwell (DLR/Overground), Tower Hill (District/Circle) or Tower Gateway (DLR).
