Close to home or just a few minutes away, Royal Docks West has it all - richly urban amenities, with a relaxed dockside atmosphere.
Billions of pounds are being invested in the Royal Docks and the neighbourhoods around it, adding new homes and businesses that are helping to bring this part of the docklands to life.
Royal Docks West also finds itself just a hop over to many major destinations - Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Westfield Stratford City and the Museum of London Docklands. Plus, it's only 10 minutes into the city from your front door.
The Docklands is an exciting an constantly developing area of London, undergoing extensive and thoughtful regeneration. With the arrival of Crossrail at Custom House, just three minutes' walk from Royal Docks West, all eyes are on this emerging neighbourhood.
There's a total of £3.7 billion being invested in Custom House and adjacent Canning Town, which will help bring 40,000 new jobs to the Royal Docks.
London's third financial and business district is being created at Royal Albert Docks - a £1.7bn investment that will bring an additional 30,000 jobs to the Royal Docks. Aimed at Chinese and other Asian companies, the development is also set to add the the area's mix of retail and restaurants.

Already linked to several bus routes and the DLR, Royal Docks West offers a simple and quick connection to so much of London, making your travel times just one other thing you'll have to boast about.
With Crossrail service anticipated to begin from Custom House in December 2018, Royal Docks West benefits from what will be the most important and impactful transportation project in the country.
With 40 stations on the line, it will connect Royal Docks West with the City in 10 minutes, Stratford in 12, Bond Street in 17, and - remarkably - Heathrow Airport in just 45 minutes, shaving off 30 minutes from the journey. Further information is available in Knight Frank's Crossrail report.
Royal Docks West is three minutes walk from Custom House station, which is currently served by the DLR and will also be a Crossrail station. Knight Frank has found that house prices within a 15-minute walk of Custom House station have risen by 51% and that property along the line is likely to see increased demand from buyers and renters once trains are running.
Royal Docks West is just steps away from the waters edge. A place of leisure, with its many boutiques, cafes, cocktail bars and restaurants, with flavours from around the world, from Lebanese to Indian, British, Thai or Chinese. Many places to unwind at Royal Victoria Dock sit at the water's edge, such as the popular restaurant Top 1 Forever, with the planter-edged terrace. Others sit right on the water - the floating Good Hotel is an excellent place to grab breakfast, sip an espresso or relax with a nightcap.
