22. Albert Basin Information & History
The Royal Albert Dock opened to shipping in 1880. It was part of the Royal Docks which also included Royal Victoria Dock and the King George V Dock. The docks were closed in 1980s, leavng lots of land for potential redevelopment. In 2004, the London Development Agency announced its plans to regenerate the Royal Albert Basin’s 20 hectare site. They LDA say “The project will bring neglected land back into use, and provide much-needed new housing and employment facilities for East London.” The plans are to build a permanent marina, new slipways and waterside access, a field of waterlilies and up to 8,000 sq m of marine related workspace.
