London Docklands is an area in South East London which were formerly part of the Port of London, at which was the once the largest port of the world.
The Docklands developed over the 17th and 18th Centuries and they were bombed during World War II. During the 20th Century, the docks went in decline and subsequently closed. The closure had a social impact with high unemployment, porverty and crime.
In 1981 London Docklands Development was formed by the government to regenerated the area. During the 1990s the area was converted to a mixture of residential, commercial and light industrial space. Access to the Docklands was improved with the Docklands Light Railway. The famous landmark is Canary Wharf. The Docklands today has a lively community with its free newspaper.
