Why not explore the nearby areas of Wapping, Whitechapel, Rotherhithe, Aldgate, Spitalfields, Limehouse, Bermondsey, Shoreditch, Bethnal Green and South Bermondsey

"The Mayflower in Rotherhithe is the only pub in Britain that is licensed to sell British and American postage stamps."

There's no better place in London than Wapping! I love the impressive mix of modern developments and historic buildings.
