Throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, London continued to grow in wealth, size and importance. The Thames developed into a major shipbuilding and naval centre. The port was also the base for many trading companies. English merchants, adventurers and explorers left London for the distant shores of the Americas, Africa, Asia and the Pacific. London became a gateway to the markets and products of the world. The port evolved during this period to cope with the increasing volume of trade and to meet the needs of London’s merchant community.
