The Isle of Dogs is an area in the East End of London that is bounded on three sides (east, south and west) by one of the largest meanders in the River Thames. The northern boundary has never been clearly or consistently defined but many accept it to be the (former) line of the West India South Dock. The name Isle of Dogs had no official status until 1987, with the creation of the Isle of Dogs Neighbourhood by Tower Hamlets London Borough Council.Arrange your visit to Isle of Dogs and discover more family-friendly attractions in London using our London online trip planner .

Where there were the old docks, in a project of a development and conversion of the same, today arise marine and luxurious apartments. It is easily reached by the DLR's light trains, which run on elevated tracks and offer very beautiful and special views, departing from the City.
Questa zona è stupenda. Grandi grattacieli che si rispecchiano sul fiume, creando un gioco di luci riflesse. È da non perdere more »This area is beautiful. Large skyscrapers that mirror the river, creating a play of reflected lights. It's not to be missed
