The South East England / London region
London is the capital city of both the United Kingdom and the constituent home in England. The ancient City of London, to which the name originally belonged, still retains its medieval boundaries, but the name "London" has long applied more generally to the whole metropolis which has grown up around it.
An important settlement for around two millennia, London is today one of the world's leading business, financial and cultural centres and its influence in politics, education, entertainment, media, fashion and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the major global cities.
London is the most populous city within city limits in the European Union, with an official population of 7.5 million and has a metropolitan area population of between 12 and 14 million. Its diverse population draws from a wide range of peoples, cultures and religions, speaking over 300 different languages.
It is an international transport hub, with five international airports and a large port. It serves as the largest aviation hub in the world and its main airport, the multi-terminal Heathrow, carries more international passengers than any other airport in the world.
London is a major tourist destination with four world heritage sites, a number of royal parks, and numerous iconic landmarks such as the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge, the Tower of London, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and the London Eye. Other attractions include famous institutions such as the British Museum and the National Gallery, along with a multitude of shopping, nightlife and entertainment venues in the West End. London's main geographical feature is the River Thames which runs through the city from the south-west to the east.

The Central London/Zone 1 / Tower Bridge area
Wapping (pronounced 'Wopping') is a place in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets. It is situated on the north bank of the River Thames between The City to the west and Shadwell to the east and north, and it faces Bermondsey and Rotherhithe on the south bank, separated from them by that section of the Thames known as the Lower Pool. It is also part of the Docklands area of London. Wapping lies between the River Thames and the ancient thoroughfare simply called The Highway.

Wapping's proximity to the river gave it a strong maritime character for centuries, well into the 20th century. It was inhabited by sailors, mastmakers, boat-builders, blockmakers, instrument-makers, victuallers and representatives of all the other trades that supported the seafarer. Wapping was also the site of 'Execution Dock', where pirates and other water-borne criminals faced execution by hanging from a gibbet constructed close to the low water mark. Their bodies would be left dangling until they had been submerged three times by the tide.
The Bell Inn, by execution dock was run by Samuel Batts. His daughter, Elizabeth, married James Cook in 1762 at Barking, after the Royal Navy captain had stayed at the Inn. The couple initially settled in Shadwell, attending St Paul's church, but later moved to Mile End. Although they had six children together, much of their married life was spent with Cook absent on his voyages, and after his murder in 1779 at Kealakekua Bay, she survived until 1835.
Perhaps Wapping's greatest attraction is the Thames foreshore itself, and the venerable public houses that face onto it. A number of the old 'stairs', such as Wapping Old Stairs and Pelican Stairs (by the Prospect of Whitby) give public access to a littoral zone (for the Thames is tidal at this point) littered with flotsam, jetsam and fragments of old dock installations. Understandably it is popular with amateur archaeologists and treasure hunters - it is surprisingly easy for even a casual visitor to pick up a centuries-old shard of pottery here.

My family & I had a great stay. The apartment is conveniently located. We enjoyed our daily walk along the Thames through St Katherine 's Dock to Tower Bridge. It's also a short walk to Wapping DLR. Lots of quaint pubs filled with history closed by. The team Alfred, Amy & Adam were great they were always helpful & even when I left my mobile behind after checking out Alfred came immediately to return the mobile to me. Amy & Adam ensured that the apartment was cleaned & well equipped. Amy even when out to get some washing detergent for us when it ran out.
Highly Recommend this apartment to anyone who wants to be conveniently located but away from the hustle & bustle of the West End.
