Venues with private dining rooms in London Docklands

The East London residential and business district known as Docklands extends eastwards along the northern bank of the Thames shoreline from Wapping & Limehouse in the east to the Royal Docks.

Formerly the location for the Port of London Authority, the area fell into disuse after the abandonment of the 19th century docks in the late 1970s. Following a massive regeneration project, the area is now home to riverside apartments and commercial offices.

London Docklands has an interesting mix of venues including modern restaurants & bars in the Canary Wharf financial area and historic traditional London waterside pubs such as The Prospect of Whitby, The Narrow and The Gun.

Alongside the City of London – to which it is connected via the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) – Canary Wharf is one of the capital’s most important corporate banking districts with its tall office skyscraper buildings dominating the London skyline. The sheer volume of office buildings and workers in the area ensure local restaurants and bars with private dining rooms are always in demand for group events including breakfast meetings & business lunches & dinners.

London Docklands is also home to Billingsgate market at Canary Wharf which is the the UK’s largest mainland fish market. The large ExCel exhibition and conference centre at the Royal Docks was temporarily converted during the Covid-19 pandemic for use as London’s Nightingale Hospital. London City Airport, located at the Royal Docks, has air connections to European cities.

Docklands is easily accessible by London Underground via Canary Wharf tube station on the Jubilee Line. DLR line stations at Limehouse, Westferry, Canary Wharf, Heron Quays & South Quay provide quick connection to The City with its connections to London Underground lines.
