Things to Do in Limehouse


The district of Limehouse in the heart of London’s Docklands is a peaceful neighbourhood situated just 10 minutes from the hustle and bustle of Central London. The Museum of London Docklands unlocks the history of London’s docks which at one time formed part of the world’s largest port.

Stepney City Farm, a breath of fresh air in one of Europe’s largest cities. Visitors get a chance to meet farm animals and explore the farm and gardens. There is also a great cafe which serves up a fresh seasonal menu, using produce from the farm.

If you’re interested in seeing London from a completely different perspective, rent a canoe from Moo Canoes and explore the quiet canals of London’s east end. A variety of canoes and tours cater for all levels and interests.

Dine at Kirvem, a great Mediterranean/Turkish restaurant in the heart of Limehouse. The seasonal, international menu provides a great choice of vegetarian options. The dishes are beautifully served, and the decor is very cosy - exposed red brick walls, hanging lamps, and wooden floors.

Drink at The Grapes, a tiny, charming, higgledy-piggledy pub which has stood on the pebbled streets of Limehouse Reach for nearly 500 years. Owned by Sir Ian McKellen, look out for one of the staffs McKellen used to film The Lord of the Rings behind the bar.
