Cubitt Town

Greenwich Foot Tunnel

Named after William Cubitt, lord mayor of London 1860-61, Cubitt Town is a district on the Isle of Dogs. It was William Cubitt who was responsible for the development of the housing and amenities in the area in the 1840s and 1850s. The majority of this was for workers employed at the docks.

Amenities today are the Mudchute Park and Farm which has an equestrian centre, café and of course, the farm itself. Perfect for relaxing.

If you like to travel further afield, there is the Greenwich Foot Tunnel, which allows you to walk under the Thames and gives access to attractions such as the Cutty Sark, the 183 acres of Greenwich Park and the National Maritime Museum.  Also, of course, this is the home of GMT, so if you have time, visit the Royal Observatory.

Cubitt Town is located to the south of the financial hub and shopping that goes with Canary Wharf and is served by several Docklands Light Railway (DLR) stations. As there is no way through for general traffic, the area is quite peaceful and mainly residential in nature. If you like the quiet life within easy access to amenities, this is the perfect place to be.
