West India Docks is not all about the gleaming skyscrapers of Canary Wharf. If you spend some time walking the many footpaths and bridges crossing the docks you will be rewarded by discovering a few Victorian reminders which have remained unchanged for over 200 years. If you get off the DLR at South Quay, I highly recommend doing a circuit of South Dock. At the far eastern end you pass the lock which marks the only connection between the Thames and the Docks. Standing on the bridge on Manchester Road which crosses the dock, you get a great view across to the Millennium Dome. There are information panels all along this stretch of the docks, showing old photos and describing what the area was like in its heyday.

The West India Docks has really become a great area to work, live & play. This area includes Canary Wharf, West India Quay and the old neighbouring Docklands. Now regenerated and very ultra modern, it is a hive of activity. Offices (the banks, financial institutes, etc) constitute the main part of Canary Wharf. There are shopping malls here as well catering to every need - from food, to fashion and everything else. Restaurants abound and West India Quay has a lovely waterfront of bars, cafes and restaurants. The old Port East Apartments building is one of the lone survivors from the shipping era and is a Grade listed 1 building. There is a Museum here as well which gives excellent information about the docklands history. All said, West India Docks/ Quay is a wonderful place to visit.

Great place to wander if you like the history of the docklands, combined with new development and some interesting boats. Surprisingly, on a trip to London, our two young sons probably enjoyed wandering around the docks more than any other area.

We came in that area to visit the docks museum and we were nicely surprised by the setting of these docks. They soon will become a place to eat or chill in London. Specially in summer time.

The warehouses are a must visit - go inside and see how well the buildings have been preserved. Great range of bars and restaurants at ground floor level, plus excellent docklands museum.

The historic West India Docks have be recycled, reinvented and redeveloped for the modern generation, with the area now housing the UK financial hub, shops, restaurants, bars, public art and a fantastic museum (Museum of London Docklands)

Great area to explore!

This site has been really well developed with a number of water side pubs and restaurants and an unusual design bridge and atmospheric lighting near the restaurants and the chance to sit and watch people wandering around and teh trains on the light railway passing over the bridge.

Near Westferry on the DLR or 5-10 minutes from Canary Wharf

Great area with modern restaurants and bars by the dock. Good for breakfast, lunch, dinner or drinks with friends
