staying in Wapping?

We're looking at apartment rentals in Wapping area of London, but don't really know anything about the neighborhood. Is it safe? Are pubs/restaurants near? Is transportation near?
Thanks for any info.

Is transportation near?

Not particularly. A few buses but the only tube stations (Tower Hill or maybe Shadwell) are a fair distance away, and the Wapping and Shadwell stations are a London Overground line which goes south into the southern inner city. Shadwell does have a DLR too but by that time you could have made the Underground proper at Tower Hill.

For tourism the location is not convenient. For a conference on the Isle of Dogs it isn't bad.

Additionally there are parts of Wapping that are fairly gentrified but other parts that are not advisable for tourists to stay. Check the location on Street View to get a feel for the neighbourhood.
