Living & Property In Rotherhithe

Rotherhithe is a residential district in south-east London, within the Borough of Southwark and is part of the Docklands area, located on the south bank of the Thames, across the water from Wapping and the Isle of Dogs.

History

The district developed as a port as far back as the 12th century and was in fact the port from which the Mayflower set sail on its way to America in 1620. The areas around Surrey Quays and Canada Water were originally working docks, 15 in total, the oldest of which being Greenland Dock, which became used by fishermen from the North Atlantic. The area also became a prominent shipyard in Elizabethan times up until the early 20th century.

The arrival of the Jubilee line in 1999 brought great connections to the West End and Canary Wharf, while the London over-ground in 2010 created a service to the City of London. Combined with extensive regeneration and a new urban centre at Canada Water, Rotherhithe is fast becoming popular with families and commuters.

Things to do in Rotherhithe

Local amenities further enhance the appeal of Rotherhithe property, with retail, historic and scenic attractions all covered off. Shopping facilities are excellent with Surrey Quays Shopping Centre the main draw with its high street stores, outlets, supermarket, bars and restaurants.

Southwark Park is the largest open green space in the area and is the ideal setting to relax and unwind, particularly at Dilston Grove which is a real place of tranquillity. Elsewhere, the park’s Cafe Gallery hosts art displays, while the bandstand is used for free concerts. Other open spaces include Cherry Gardens and Stave Hill Ecological Park.

Still outdoors, for those interested in history there’s Lavender Dock Walk which leads past some of the significant historic buildings and moorings, plus there’s Rotherhithe Thames Path which spans around the historic village, with a number of beautiful views and impressive buildings. Other historic and cultural highlights include the Coleman Projects Space which is a gallery and art centre, the museum 100 Black Men which is dedicated to the history of the black London community and the Brunel Engine House.

Rotherhithe Property

As is typical of a former docks area, property in Rotherhithe consists of family housing set back from the river and modern apartment blocks along the river front which are popular with young professionals working in Canary Wharf or the City. For example, Hays Court is a converted warehouse on Rotherhithe Street – where many of the modern riverside apartments and wharf conversions are situated – and provides some of the most sought-after flats in Rotherhithe including two-bed, top floor apartments with balconies overlooking the river. Other popular wharves include Ivory Wharf, Canada Wharf and Iceland Wharf.

In addition to flats, there are also houses on the river front – Princes Riverside Road features three-storey, four bed townhouses. However those with views of the river can be extremely expensive, meaning it is best to head inland for a cheaper property.

Surrey Quays was re-developed in 1980 to include over 5,000 new homes, a new marina and water sports centre, and later, Surrey Quays shopping centre. Similarly, Canada Water has experienced a facelift, with the dock itself now a wildlife centre, and new residential properties forming part of ambitious regeneration plans.

A number of high rise blocks can also be found in Rotherhithe, some of which were formerly council owned. These include Landmann House and Addy House –both of which offer affordable apartments together with the Irwell Estate.
