Docklands Hotels - London

Mini guide to Docklands

     

Docklands is sandwiched between the City of London and Greenwich and has been significantly redeveloped over the last ten years. It used to be the Port of London, a major shipping terminal dealing with goods from all over the world. Now there are many shops and restaurants in the area as well as riverside promenades that are well worth a stroll.

Butlers Wharf is the location of the old tea, coffee and spice warehouses and has been converted into trendy apartments, restaurants, art galleries and designer shops. It features other places of interest such as the Design Museum, open daily from 11:30-18:00, which focuses on 20th and 21st century mass-produced products. This is a great area to walk around on the cobbled street and experience London's port history. Butlers Wharf also hosts four excellent Terence Conran restaurants.

The Museum in Docklands, detailing the 2000-year history of the docks, the river, port, as well as the recent regeneration of the area, is well worth a visit. The museum is open daily from 10:00-18:00, and admission is £5.00 for adults and free for children. Access is via Canary Wharf or West India Quay DLR stations.

The London Arena (tel. 020 7538 1212) is also located in the Docklands. It is the home of the London Knights ice hockey club and a world-class entertainment arena hosting a vast array of events. It is worth checking out what is playing during your visit. Access is via the Crossharbour and London Arena DLR station.

Docklands is easily accessible via the automated Docklands Light Railway (DLR) and a great place from which to explore Greenwich on the DLR or the Jubilee Line (connects with DLR at Canary Wharf). This area also provides easy access to City Airport, for those travelling to Europe or other UK destinations.
