Your All In London guide to Shadwell

Situated between Wapping and Limehouse, Shadwell is part of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and is considered an important part of East London. It is thought that there were no inhabitants at all in Shadwell until late in the 17th century. At this time, the harbours and ports in East London became a lot busier attracting hoards of residents.

Today, the old docks are still very evident with Shadwell Basin continue to be used for various water sports. Due to the proximity to Canary Wharf, Shadwell has recently seen a growth of new residential buildings to accommodate the City’s professionals moving to the area; much of Shadwell’s accommodation enjoys superb river views.
