The Docklands Light Railway area is steeped in history, rich with hidden, unusual and sometimes scandalous tales. DLR has teamed up with the Museum of London Docklands to bring these facts to life.
East London has witnessed pivotal moments in political history such as the Battle of Cable Street in 1936 and its fair share of gory events like the execution, then gruesome display, of pirates for centuries. Plus, there are fascinating stories behind some of the oldest buildings and monuments that are still standing.
