Welcome to the 2012 annual guide to Greenwich, Docklands and other parts of east London that can be easily explored by Docklands Light Railway
Us Londoners have been pretty spoilt for cultural highlights and stunning sports events in 2012, but we’re never satisfied, are we? Which is why now is the perfect time to ask, ‘What’s next?’
In this guide we invite you to explore the varied delights the Docklands Light Railway can take you to, reflecting the best of London – what’s new, what’s back and what’s next in the coming months.
After work, for a night out with mates, a weekend afternoon with someone special or even a day trip with the kids, the mix of heritage and innovation provides you with all the great London experiences you could wish for.
Alongside state-of-the-art attractions like the Emirates
Air Line and the exciting future plans for the Olympic Park, in this guide we check out how destinations like Greenwich, Canary Wharf and Stratford continue to offer fresh pleasures. There’s the recently reopened Cutty Sark, where you can explore the decks, the hold, and the stunning new exhibition space underneath the great ship’s hull, the boutiques of Westfield Stratford City and Canary Wharf, the markets south of the river, and live music, comedy and performances across the whole area, including at The 02.
Get close to history at the Tower of London and the Museum of London Docklands, find places to be entertained or just chill out in parks and piazzas, and see the sights from a new perspective with the Thames Clippers boat services that run along the river.
From gift shopping and ice rinks to art shows and great dining, there’s lots still to discover so you can see out London’s incredible 2012 in style.
