About the Area
Local attractions include St. Annes in Limehouse, a famous Anglican church built in the 18th century and designed by the much revered architect Nicholas Hawksmoor. The Limehouse Basin also offers great canalside walks, taking you off along the Regents Canal, and Limehouse Cut (Which connects to the River Lee), and providing an excellent base to explore London via the surrounding waterways.
The Grapes public house, is also considered to be one of Limehouse`s main attractions. The current building dates back to the 1720`s, however a pub has stood on this site since 1583. It originally served the dockers of the Limehouse Basin, but nowadays it’s as well known for its famous owner (Sir Ian McKellen), as it is for its draft beers and home cooked food, with a view over the River Thames for good measure.
Ropemakers fields is the main green space in Limehouse. Although it’s a fairly new park (Laid out by the London Docklands Development Corporation), it takes its name from the centuries of rope making in the area. This historic connection is given further clout by Samuel Pepys, who refers to a visit to the areas ropeyard in 1664.
