What makes this tour special

Explore some of London’s docklands on the Isle of Dogs, as well as the financial centre at Canary Wharf, and the amazing urban farm at Mudchute. Then walk the hidden footpath under the Thames to the Royal Borough of Greenwich, to see the Cutty Sark, the Royal Naval College, and stunning views along the Thames. On your private tour you will: 


The London Docklands cover 9 square miles of riverfront along the Thames, including the Isle of Dogs in the borough of Tower Hamlets and the historic naval borough of Greenwich, which you’ll explore on this tour, as well as others like Lewisham, Southwark, and Newham. 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 are three docks, built to import and export goods, and occasionally passengers, from and to the British West Indies. It was opened in 1802 if open you can visit the museum close by.  The area of Canary Wharf has been redeveloped to become the financial centre of London, famous for its glass and concrete buildings. It is dominated by the 45-story skyscraper, One Canada Square. 

Just south of here, you will visit Mudchute Park and Farm, the largest urban farm in Europe. A rather incongruous green area is so close to the skyscrapers of Canary Wharf! It is a fascinating Nature Reserve where you’ll learn all about biodiversity and also the ‘dig for Britain’ campaign of WW2. 

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 Royal Naval College and the Cutty Sark – a famous tea clipper ship from the 19th century. Enjoy fabulous views across the water of Canary Wharf, Tower Bridge and the Shard.
