Waterside Living in London

Desired for their convenient location and tranquil settings, apartments with water views in London are naturally very popular and sought after.

Berkeley Group has a stunning collection of apartments in the heart of the capital, offering residents the unique blend of urban living with all the benefits of a waterside retreat.

Grand Union, Alperton

Located in the London Borough of Brent, Grand Union is a prised canal-side neighbourhood in North West London. 

Residents can take a stroll or bike ride along the pathways beside the meandering 137-mile Grand Union Canal. If you’d rather be on the water, hire a narrowboat for a leisurely weekend away or try your hand at canoeing. Or, if you prefer to enjoy the water from afar, simply sit back and relax at one of the bars and restaurants at the Canalside Piazza.

Commuters will benefit from the Zone 3 location, enabling you to arrive at Oxford Circus in just 26 minutes. Alternatively, those working from home will appreciate being able to step away from their desk and into the plenty of open space available, including riverside meadows and a tranquil waterfall garden to enjoy.

At the end of each day, lucky residents of the thirteen storey Affinity Tower can soak up the stunning views of the canal from their private balcony, while residents of recently launched Waterview House can head to the rooftop garden with views to the West and the Grand Union Canal below.

South Quay Plaza, Canary Wharf

If you are searching for luxury apartments with a view, look no further than South Quay Plaza

Superbly situated on the South Dock, this stunning apartment building is intentionally positioned at a 45-degree angle to the water, maximising the space and natural light surrounding the development. Inside, larger apartments have wall to ceiling height windows and Juliette balconies with panoramic views of the breath-taking London skyline reflected in the glistening River Thames.    

Thanks to the fantastic transport links available at the nearby business district of Canary Wharf, your commute will be drastically reduced, which means you can spend more time making the most of the onsite amenities. You could relax in the 2.6 acres of waterside gardens, take a dip in the 20m resident-only swimming pool which overlooks the South Dock or unwind with a glass of wine at the resident exclusive 56th-floor bar and terrace for unrivalled views of the sun going down across London.

Chelsea Creek, Chelsea

Offering a distinctly European vibe, Chelsea Creek was intentionally designed by award-winning architectural practice Squire & Partners, to replicate the serene waterways at the heart of cities such as Amsterdam and Copenhagen. 

As the name suggests, the development is situated along Chelsea Creek and the River Thames. At 31 storeys high, many residents can enjoy unspoilt views over the winding river and iconic London skyline.  

Residents are moments from the popular King’s Road and Chelsea Harbour. Over half of the complex is dedicated to lush gardens, vibrant flowerbeds, and European style bridges. The focus on enhanced wellbeing flows throughout the development, with an onsite spa and fitness suite amongst the ample amenities available.

Royal Arsenal Riverside, Woolwich

Occupying a prime spot along the River Thames, Royal Arsenal Riverside is one of the most sought-after London-based waterside developments.

The shimmering exterior of the Galley Wharf building beautifully reflects the sparkling river below, while the water-facing private balconies give lucky residents the perfect backdrop to entertain friends, family or simply relax at the end of a busy day.

The development has over a kilometre of pathways situated alongside the river, where residents can enjoy an early morning stroll, a lunchtime jog or after work cycle ride. Choose the path which takes you to Maribor Park, where you can catch your breath amongst the lush greenery or wander along the winding streams that connect you back to the river. 

To truly take advantage of your riverside location, take the Thames Clipper riverboat service from Woolwich Arsenal Pier, which connects you to nearby locations, such as Greenwich and Canary Wharf in under half an hour. If you wish to explore a little a further afield, Royal Arsenal Riverside is part of the National Trail Coastal Path, which allows walkers to follow a 49 mile stretch from Woolwich to the sea on the Isla of Grain.
