Welcome to the Thames Riverfront, our luxurious 3 bed/2 bath apartment with spectacular Thames river views, available for 6 guests on a short-let/holiday basis for individual/corporate travellers / professionals / families. Our beautiful home is located on the front of a modern, central yet quiet, riverside development sitting right on the north bank of the River Thames in the Royal Docks of London, only a 5 minute walk from King George V Docklands Light Railway station. The Royal Docks is a quiet residential area steeped in London history, where merchant ships docked in the heyday of the English Empire and where the ‘Mayflower’ embarked for its famous voyage to America in 1620, approximately 800 yards from the apartment. Today the characteristic old warehouses have been transformed to designer apartments, surrounded by supermarkets, excellent restaurants, cafés and boutiques.
During your stay at the Thames Riverfront, enjoy fresh walks around the numerous canals of the famous Docklands and the City areas discovering London’s old shipping/finance history. Reinvent yourself and unwind in East End’s diverse street markets and leisure spots that are full of shopping and culinary surprises! On your return, our sleek apartment will provide the final relaxing touch to a full day as it is furnished to the highest standards and benefits from amazing Thames river views from the living room and two of the three bedrooms, an ultra modern open plan (yet secluded) kitchen, two stylish bathrooms, very good storage, wooden flooring and a sizeable balcony. There is also a large communal courtyard and landscaped gardens for the use of all guests and children and with views of the Thames River and towards South East London, Greenwich and Canary Wharf.
Being compulsive travellers like you, it unfortunately means that we will not be able to personally welcome you at times. In compensation, we have a professionally trained Welcome Team, who are available to check you in/out and will be on call to ensure your comfort throughout your stay. It goes without saying, however, that we are your first port of call for requests and bookings and remain fully contactable by email throughout your stay. After all, it is our home and we have at heart the best interests of all parties involved . Feel free to drop us a line with your enquiry/review any time. We will be more than happy to accommodate reasonable requests and discuss constructive reviews/comments!

We, Thames and Riverfront, are local Docklands residents and have been for the past 10 years, so we have a wealth of knowledge of the local area. We have also travelled extensively around the world during which time we carried out lots of valuable research, which we can now happily pass onto you!
These personal recommendations to London sightseeings, restaurants, pubs, cocktails & wine bars, theatres, cinemas, live music and event venues as well as day trip ideas are sent to all our guests when they book and are available at the apartment during their stay. We both see travelling as a means of enriching our minds and souls, and take great pleasure in reading, learning about history/culture, the fine and culinary arts. This is reflected also in the Thames Riverfront ambience and we look forward to welcoming you and treating you like we would like to be treated as travellers of the world! We remain at your disposal for any enquiries you may have before, during and after your booking. Bon voyage and see you soon!
