Henry VIIIs Kennels

Henry VIIIs Kennels

Home to the King of England's kennels.

Location: Isle of Dogs, E14

Description: The name Isle of Dogs is first recorded in 1588, in fact, the whole area was once simply known as Stepney Marsh.

The Isle of Dogs is a peninsula in the East End of London. It is surrounded on three sides (East, South and West) by the River Thames, which follows a horseshoe-shaped arc to the south of the peninsula. It is part of the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and part of the London Docklands.

But some say the Isle of Dogs got it's name from the 'main man' Henry VIII (28 June 1491 - 28 January 1547), King of England and Lord of Ireland.

Henry was then the second monarch of the House of Tudor and it seems liked dogs...some believe that the area was so called because this is where Henry kept his kennels.
