Once an important trade hub, the Royal Docks is now a thriving waterfront neighbourhood in its own right, packed with high-rise residential blocks, offices, hotels and restaurants. It gets its name from three docks – the Royal Albert Dock, the Royal Victoria Dock and the King George V Dock. The ward is in the borough of Newham, with a prime spot on the River Thames. Read on to discover developments that are rated the best places to live in Royal Docks. In addition, read reviews from residents who own or rent in Royal Docks.
Many shops, pubs and restaurants in this area, good for families as there lots to keep the kids occupied. My partner and I enjoy going to eat in different places and there loads to choose from. Many transport links and nearby bus stations etc. which makes it easy to commute without driving everywhere.
Please review your development:
Design and facilities are good and make living in the development quite smooth. Property management could be better as we often don’t hear back when we have email queries, although when we call they do get back to us eventually. The building itself is quite dirty and could be maintained better. If these improvements were made it would make living here more pleasurable.
Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:
It would have been good to know some of the hotspots or more popular places for good evening out as we had to find these ourselves. The same with the parks and leisure facilities, we had to do a lot of our own exploring and would have benefitted from a little guidance beforehand.
