About Limehouse Basin:


Limehouse's association with opium dates back to the 19th century, when it was a hub of East Asian trade. Opium dens were clandestinely operated in Limehouse's alleys, catering to sailors, immigrants, and affluent Londoners.

The area's reputation for opium dens was famously perpetuated by sensationalist literature and media of the time. However, historical records suggest that while opium use was prevalent, it was not as widespread or nefarious as depicted.

Today, Limehouse has shed its opium-infused past and emerged as a vibrant riverside neighborhood, known for its multicultural community, historic architecture, and scenic waterfront. While echoes of its opium history remain, Limehouse is now celebrated for its cultural diversity, culinary scene, and dynamic atmosphere, attracting residents and visitors alike to its lively streets and picturesque canals.
