The Museum of London’s Docklands takes an interesting look through the local history, and it’s set in a beautiful 19th-century warehouse. And if that takes your fancy, you might like to visit the Grade I listed St. Anne’s Limehouse. It’s a charming, historic maritime church.
A little further out, you can take the Docklands Light Railway to the edge of the area to Tower Bridge and pop into the Tower of London. Or for something different, pet the organically reared animals on Surrey Docks Farm or at Mudchute Park and Farm.
With so much choice in this cosmopolitan area, it’s good to do a bit of research or at least get your bearings to find the perfect eateries for you.
There are lots of cafés to grab a drink or a bite to eat, but for something more substantial dine at the trendy Terrace Restaurant at Hilton London Docklands Riverside, indulge in a steak in Argentinian restaurant, Gaucho Canary, head for some tapas at Iberica or relax with a drink in style at Nicolas Wine Bar.
For Docklands and Canary Wharf hotels, try the Four Seasons Hotel London at Canary Wharf or the Hilton London Canary Wharf for a little bit of luxury. Or Hotel Ibis Docklands and Travelodge Hotel – London Docklands for a budget-friendly, comfortable stay.
