“Interesting neighbourhood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

Very clean and 'business-like' as expected. We only passed through on the DLR on our way to Greenwich but were quite impressed and certainly a different part of London to have a quick look around while switching between tube and DLR.

“Better and Better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Once upon a time, Docklands was run down and dismal, but not any more! The transformation in this area of London has been amazing and it is now an area that is desirable and full of really interesting modern architecture and design

“Strange urban and different”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

The ghostlike experience of docklands seems very different from the rest of London, but definitely worth a few hours. take the railway through and see the designed "Canary wharf" train station. Combined with the tunnel under the Thames to Greenwich, you can spend an exciting day.

“London New World”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

All that you would expect when bankers run riot with buildings but some fun stuff as well. Use the DLR and waterways to see it at its best.
