West India Docks
The West India Docks
are a series of docks on the Isle of Dogs
. They were set up in 1800
for the West India Company, and were the first commercial wet docks in London. The docks made the Isle of Dogs a true island.
After the effectice closure of the Port of London, the area was regenerated as part of the Docklands scheme, and is now home to the developments of Canary Wharf.
