- Wapping’s geographical area is defined by its borders with The Highway to the north, Limehouse to the east, St Katherine’s Dock to the west, and the Thames to the south. We suggest you don’t do too much experimentation with crossing the border to the south… you’ll get a bit wet!
- The name ‘Wapping’ was first recorded c.1220 and may have derived from words meaning ‘the settlement of Wæppa’s people’. Alternatively, it may have meant ‘marshy place’, via a connection with the Old English word wapol.

We think it’s fair to say that Galliard’s upcoming Baltimore Tower has prompted more discussion on architectural design than any other recent development in the Canary Wharf area. Baltimore Tower is due for completion towards the very end of 2016, with most units completing in 2017.
Now is the right time to start thinking about renting in Baltimore Tower, getting advice from your letting agent whether you are a landlord in Baltimore Tower, or are looking for properties to rent in Baltimore Tower.

So, it would seem that I’m not the only person who is considering the question.
Only yesterday Jayne Dowle wrote the article “What it really costs to sell a property” in The Times. Jayne was kind enough to interview me earlier in the week on the subject of estate agents’ fees. We all have to acknowledge that estate agents’ fees make up a large part of moving costs, second only to stamp duty on the next purchase.

DLR: Blackwall is well served by the Docklands Light Railway: Blackwall station itself, East India and Poplar. DLR trains run every 3-4 minutes at peak times.
Tube: There isn’t a tube station located within the area itself, but just one stop away east from East India DLR is Canning Town station which connects you to the Jubilee line. Alternatively, go west on the DLR for a connection to the Central line at Bank.
Bus: The D7 service connects Blackwall to wider east London, via Canary Wharf. Whilst the 277 will take you all the way to Highbury & Islington, and the 15 to Charing Cross, via Aldgate and St. Paul’s. The N550 night bus from Trafalgar Square also passes through the area before terminating at Canning Town station.
Airport: Getting away from it all couldn’t be easier with London City Airport just a few stops away on the DLR or a few minutes by cab.
