Where you live is important. It isnít just a building that is used to eat, sleep and store things, it is your sanctuary that you retreat to at the end of the day. It is the place you feel most comfortable and relaxed. It is where you keep your treasured objects and it is where you convene with loved ones. Itís because of this that you shouldnít move into a new home hastily. You should not just pick the first house you see or choose one simply because itís in your price range. It should be a well thought out decision that could affect your whole life. In order that you make the right decision you should put in as much time and effort as possible. Search far and wide and once youíve found a home you like check it top to bottom and make sure you explore the neighbourhood so that you know that everything is perfect.

If the London Docklands is where you are moving to then you should know that it is part of the boroughs of Newham, Southwark, Greenwich and Tower Hamlets. The Docklands were formerly a section of the port of London that at one point was the largest port in the world but has since been redeveloped for commercial and residential use.
In Roman and medieval periods the ports around what is now London were small and vulnerable to bad weather and thieves. In 1696 the Howland Great Dock was constructed in Rotherhithe to replace them as a large and secure port. Unsurprisingly it was a huge success and would continue to grow over time, with many other docks being added between 1802 to 1921. Between 1960 and 1980 most of Londonís docks were closed and Docklands was no exception. However, plans were quickly underway to reopen and redevelop the area. Many business buildings and expensive homes were constructed and later the Docklands Light Railway made transport to and from the area much easier and more roads to the area were constructed as well. The proximity to London City Airport also helped matters.
Today Docklands is a popular place for businesses and for people to live. Many old warehouses have been converted to flats and has become a prevalent place for commuters to live. The area is still growing with more development in the works and now features its own free newspaper and symphony orchestra.
So if you feel where you live is important then get on the phone with Man and Van and weíll take you to your new Docklands home.
