Blackwall Area Guide London

Located in London’s E14 district, Blackwall is one of the capital’s oldest and interesting districts. Once part of London’s booming shipping trade, the area has been transformed in recent years to become a trendy and attractive neighbourhood. The area is best known for the famous ‘Blackwall Tunnel’, a pair of road tunnels underneath the River Thames. However there’s much more to this area than simply road transport.
