Royal Docks

The Royal Group of Docks actually comprises of the Royal Albert Dock, the Royal Victoria Dock and the King George V Dock. The area is part of the London Borough of Newham and was designated a special enterprise zone in 2012 to help attract jobs and businesses to the area.

The docks were a great commercial success during the first half of the 20th century but after a period of decline in the 1960s they finally closed to commercial traffic in 1981.The poor transport links have meant that the redevelopment of the area has been slower than other sites in London, however, thousands of homes have now been built and transport is gradually improving.

Property for sale in the Royal Docks area is now growing in popularity as a number of residential complexes have been built, particularly in the Eastern Quay, Capital East and Gallion’s Reach areas.  There is also large development planned in order to create a Royal Wharf area which will include housing, commercial businesses and office space.

The area is primarily served by the Docklands Light Railway, and as part of the improvement of the transport infrastructure of the area, there will be a further extension of this, and Crossrail is also due to serve the area soon. London City Airport was opened in 1988 which proved to be a massive boost to the area.
