If you are visiting London, this is a MUST SEE!
It is a short walk from the DLR station at West India Quay. Entrance to the museum is free of charge as well.
The walk through the museum takes you through the development of the docks and surrounding area from Roman times to the present day. The exhibits are well presented, with plenty of explanations and background information available. There are also full-size dioramas of the area so you can get a real feel for what it must have been like to live and work in the area. All aspects of trade are explored, including the slave trade.
I could have spent several days in the museum. Dad (an ex-lighterman) would have loved it.
