What to do

There is plenty to do around Dock Street Studio, as it's located right between East London (Brick lane, Shoreditch, Spitalfields) and Tower Hill (Tower Bridge, Borough Market, Tower of London) and so all that both have to offer is at your feet. 

To Visit

The Tower of London

Tower of London, London, EC3N 4AB +44 (0)20 3166 6000 https://www.hrp.org.uk/tower-of-london

If it's culture you want, look no further than the very large castle a 10 minute walk from the Studio. See the Crown Jewels a collection of 23,578 gemstones that is truly bling for a king, the Beefeaters, the prison of the Tower of London and even the gruesome torture dungeons.

HMS Belfast

HMS Belfast, Queen's Walk, London SE1 2JH +44 (0)20 7416 5000 www.iwm.org.uk/visits/hms-belfast

Just a short walk across London Bridge, you can explore this historic warship to discover what life was like on board for the crew at war and at sea in WW2. Lots of big guns, mixed with a beautiful panoramic view of the Shard, and the Tower of London from the water. What could be better? 

Borough Market

8 Southwark St, London SE1 1TL http://boroughmarket.org.uk

Walk across Tower Bridge and find one of the largest and oldest Markets in London. Borough Market has been selling food since 1851, and it still tastes great.

Spitalfields Market

16 Horner Square, London E1 6EW 0207 377 1496 www.spitalfields.co.uk

A 15 minute walk north of the studio, past the wafting fragrances of the curry houses of Brick Lane is Spitalfields market. You can get anything here, from antique Vinyls, to vintage clothes, to pop up 3D postcards. Theres also always something good to eat being cooked up too. 

The Shard

32 London Bridge St, London SE1 9SG +44 (0)844 499 7111 https://www.theviewfromtheshard.com

At 306m tall, the Shard is London's highest and best view. At almost twice the height of any other viewing platform in the capital, it offers visitors unparalleled 360-degree views for up to 40 miles. A scenic 20 minute walk across Tower Bridge and past the mayors office will take you there. Well worth a visit.

Thames Rockets Speedboat Rental

St. Katharine's Pier, St Katharine Way, Tower Hamlets, London, E1W 1LD 020 7928 8933 http://www.thamesrockets.com

One of Tripadvisors top rated 'Things to do in London' is this speedboat rental, which conveniently has its headquarters a 10 minute walk from the studio, by St. Katharine's Docks. You will see all of London's lankmarks as you fly by at speeds of up to 40mph. Thrill-seekers look no further.

To Eat & Drink

Bellavita Italia Cafe

11C Dock Street, Whitechapel, London, E1 8JN 020 3006 3070 https://www.bellavitashop.co.uk

Bellavita is next door to the studio, and it's fair to say that we got pretty exited when it opened. Freshly made and cooked italian pasta, pizza, baguettes (with any choice of filling), coffee and gelato are all now a 10 second walk from the Studio front door. Bellavita also has lots of specialist italian ingredients for the more daring cooks among you, who may want to take some supplies back and cook up a feast in the studio kitchen.

Pret a Manger

1, Thomas More St, St Katharine's Docks, London E1W 1YN 020 7932 5279 www.pret.co.uk

Pret is a very short 1 minute walk from the studio, and has a great selection of Vegetarian and Vegan options for those who need it. If you need to make the most of the day in the studio and want a quick and healthy meal, this is the way to go!

St. Katharine's Docks

50 St. Katharine's way, London E1W 1LA +44 (0)20 7264 5287 http://www.skdocks.co.uk

St. Katharine's Docks are a 3 minute walk from the studio and have a wide range of restaurants and places to drink. The Dickens inn is three floors of different food and good drinks. The restaurants include Emilia's Crafted Pasta, ZIZI, Tom's Kitchen, PingPong, The Medieval Banquet, Bravas Tapas, CAU, Cote Brasserie, Kilikya's and many more. The St.Katharine's Docks Cafe also does an excellent full english breakfast with a view over the marina, if you need revitalising after a long night in the studio.

Waitrose

Thomas More St, St Katharine Docks, London E1W 1YY 020 7702 1640 www.waitrose.com

We're very lucky to have such a good selection of supermarkets around us. Waitrose is the biggest by far, and the closest at just a 3 minute walk from the studio. This is a full size supermarket, with a bakery section, fresh Deli counter and pretty much anything you need. Whether you're buying a ready-made snack, or a series of ingredients to cook up a feast back at the studio kitchen.
