Deptford is one of London's most historic Riverside towns. Once the site of the most important Shipyard in England, it has a rich maritime history, home to explorers and adventurers, writers and even a Russian Tzar! Today it's a vibrant modern community, with its regenerated Creek-side area hosting many of Deptford's 100+ artists studios and the award winning Laban Centre of contemporary dance training and performance.
