"Over 11,000 people lost their homes so that the St Katherine Dock could be built. It is now central London’s only marina that boasts luxury apartments, shops and the Dickens’s Inn. As you walk along Wapping High Street you can imagine the same place bursting with numerous pubs where sailors would look for entertainment while dreaded pressgangs roamed the streets. Listen to the tales of a colonel that stole King Charles’s II crown jewels and a judge that loved his drink as much as sentencing others to death. Discover the site of the execution dock where pirates were brought to hang with great spectacle and ceremony. It was here that Captain Kidd was hung. Pop into London’s oldest riverside pub that was visited by Samuel Pepys, J.M.W. Turner and Charles Dickens."
