Why visit Docklands?
With the area home to The Cutty Sark, the Palladian treasure The Queens House, the contemporary robust Thames Barrier and abundant Greenwich Royal Park, this London suburb has so much to see and do. You can also fly here from Belfast City, Edinburgh and Glasgow, as well as from numerous European destinations thanks to London City Airport located in its centre. With it being a great choice for a short break, there is a large choice of hotels on offer here.
Crowne Plaza London Docklands is an example of the excellent hotels found in this area
When should I visit?
Ride the DLR, the Dockland Light Railway, to marvel at the City’s sights: get off at Royal Victoria to travel the Emirates Air Line across the Thames, getting perfect views; make a stop at Trinity Buoy Wharf for London’s only lighthouse; Canary Wharf for the vibrant business district; West India Quay for the Museum of London Docklands to learn about this fast progressing area and Tower Gateway for Tower Bridge and to begin a Royal journey at the Tower of London.
