Butcher Row, E1W

From early on the City of London attracted talent from around the country but the Guilds set up to protect the standards of their craft also kept out many of these new-comers from operating within its walls. Many therefore set up business around the dockyards, as the next most profitable alternative. The name itself dates from medieval times.
