The Thames Gateway, in East London is the highly celebrated and most important urban regeneration project in the UK. For decades it has performed as a testing ground for a wide range of tools and policies prior to their deployment throughout rest of the country. Revisiting its story allows us to unveil the evolution of urban regeneration, its success and its failures. It also highlights the actual effects of Conservative and Labour rhetoric and enables us to put in focus the relationship between urban regeneration and the role of London as a global city.

Keywords: Thames Gateway, urban regeneration, London.
