Limehouse property Buying Guide

Limehouse in East London forms part of London's famous Docklands. Located in the borough of Tower Hamlets, it has undergone huge regeneration over the years and pioneered waterside living in the capital since the eighties.

Many Limehouse properties in the area are within secure modern developments, usually built within the last twenty years or so. Most of the developments have a concierge or porter, and many offer excellent views of the River Thames, Limehouse Marina or Limehouse Cut/Regents Canal. This style of waterside living has become increasingly popular over the years. Coupled with the easy access into the City and Canary Wharf, it's easy to see why demand in the area has gone from strength to strength.
