I absolutely loved the dockyard with all the cranes, the residential area looked like a very pleasant place to live and I was very satisfied with this location of the hotel that I stayed at. The bridge is a glorified pedestrian bridge. The lift worked.

The historical Royal Victoria Dock and Bridge is located to London City Airport - of which you get great views from the airport. Nice to see such a historical trading area being brought into the modern age and still being used.

I saw the bridge while entering Excel London and immediately wanted to climb and try how London seems from there and voila! It was a nice sunset while the planes are flying over after departing from the City Airport behind.

We were staying nearby and going to the O2 so walked along the path by the old docks. It is fascinating to se all the regeneration that has gone on but also still see a few of the old warehouse buildings. A great area now.

The place is one of the nicest places in London that a visitor has to see. So serene and good for strolls on their park.
