Limehouse and Wapping. Two neighbouring riverside settlements with a maritime heritage and plenty of docks, wharves and warehouses between them. Take a riverside wander through the historic area.

I have the privilege to live there. Such an amazing neighbourhood. Shame that Commercial road divide it so badly
