About St Katharine Docks, an IGY Destination
St Katharine Docks is London’s largest marina comprising 520,000sq ft of office, retail and residential. Opened in 1828 and designed by Thomas Telford, the Docks were one of the busiest ports in the UK, renowned for handling trade in luxury items such as sugar, rum, spices, perfumes, wines and with over 32,000 tons of tea passing through on a yearly basis. Its name, St Katharine, derives from the church and hospital that previously resided at the site. Developed in the early 90’s, the award-winning marina has 185 berths in three basins, for vessels up to 40m long, as a visitor or on long-term berth contracts. St Katharine Docks has outstanding facilities and services along with a social calendar of events and all-year-round activities. Since February 2020, the marina is managed, operated, and branded by Island Global Yachting (IGY) Marinas, bringing its industry-leading knowledge to further enhance the marina operations and customer service.
