The London Docklands cover 9 square miles of riverfront along the Thames, including the Isle of Dogs and the historic naval and royal borough of Greenwich, which you’ll explore on this tour. They have been in use for centuries as the hub of Britain’s global trade until most of them were destroyed during WW2. 

The West India Docks were three docks, built to import and export goods, and occasionally passengers, from and to the British West Indies. From massive warehouses, today the area of Canary Wharf has been redeveloped into the financial centre of London, famous for its glass and concrete buildings. It is dominated by the 45-story skyscraper, One Canada Square.

Afterwards, head under the Thames on the footpath connecting the Isle of Dogs to Greenwich: a quaint and architecturally beautiful borough of London with deep connections to its maritime past. Greenwich is home to the magnificent Royal Naval College, which has been used for many filming locations, including Les Miserables, Poldark, and Bridgerton
