Limehouse – London’s Waterway District
Nestled within the east of England’s capital city of London, Limehouse is part of the Borough of Tower Hamlets on the River Thames’ Northern bank. Its post code district is E14 and Limehouse has borders with Rotherhithe, Ratcliff and Millwall. The area gets its name from the lime kilns along the Thames which were the main providers for the local potteries dating back as far as 1356. Limehouse is served very well by its efficient public transport, which includes regular busses and trains. From there one can reach other parts of London with links to the rest of the country. One of the main attractions of Limehouse has to be the Limehouse Basin Marina. The marina is set back slightly from the Thames and it can house up to 90 vessels including cruisers. This area is said to be one of the calmest areas of London and a great and starting point to tour the whole city. The road system in Limehouse is typical of London, so it is very busy for most of the time. The main road through the district is the A13 which passes by Limehouse Train Station.
