The central London marina, St. Katharine Docks, has once again been awarded one of the highest accreditations for its outstanding customer services and facilities, the prestigious 5 Gold Anchors Award.
The scheme, by TYHA (The Yacht Harbour Association), rates marinas quality of facilities, customer service and infrastructure, and earlier this year, the Docks were subject to a rigorous assessment with all elements of the marina and operations put under scrutiny. There are 135 Marinas across 27 countries in the Gold Anchor scheme, and St Katharine Docks is one of 65 to be awarded 5 Gold Anchors.
Occupying three historic interlinked basins, the marina provides 185 berths for vessels up to 40m long, as a visitor or on long-term berth contracts. The marina offers outstanding facilities and services along with a social calendar of enjoyable nautical events and all-year-round activities. Opened in 1828, the Thomas Telford-designed docks were once one of the busiest ports in the UK, renowned for handling luxury goods, sugar, rum, spices, perfumes, wines and tea. Today, St. Katharine Docks has evolved into a thriving waterside community, and offers great facilities in an iconic setting. As the only central London marina, visitors can enjoy the unique experience of sailing the Thames and mooring right next to the Tower of London and Tower Bridge.
