An Alternative Tour of London's St Katharine Docks and Wapping

Join us on this enthralling walk through St Katharine Docks and glimpse into the London that was once the warehouse and the workshop of the world.

Docks and dockers. Perfume and rum. London’s East End did not just give us Cockney rhyming slang and Jack the Ripper. Join us on this fascinating walk through St Katharine Docks and Wapping to peel back the centuries and see for yourself the ingenuity and hardship that produced the first industrial superpower.

Don’t miss the next tour starting at St Katharine Docks entrance, by Tower Bridge on Saturday 18 October at 1pm. Our fully qualified tour guides are accredited by the Institute of Tourist Guiding.

These tours are organised by WORLDwrite, a youth educational charity that campaigns for global equality.
