Spotlight on London Docklands
One of London’s two financial districts offering high-spec offices at good value
Why take office space in London Docklands?
The Docklands area has benefitted significantly from Canary Wharf’s ongoing revitalisation. As one of London's two financial districts, the Docklands is home to a number of large financial institutions. This part of London is well connected by public transport, including the new Elizabeth line, and is even accessible by boat.
As well as being a wonderful riverside location, offering access to a number of bars and restaurants, the Docklands is also home to some lovely green spaces – such as Mudchute Park and Farm and Island Gardens.
Office space is readily available this part of the capital, with a steady stream of new development, meaning space can be secured at relatively low cost. Typically, the buildings in this part of the city offer a large footplate and high specification finishes.
