Museum of London Docklands

14 pics. The Museum of London Docklands ⇒ is in the Docklands region (nearest rail being West India Quay on the Docklands Light Railway) and is all about the history of the Docklands as distinct from the more extensive history of London at the Museum of London ⇐ at 150 London Wall. 

The Museum of London Docklands is full of historical information, is free to enter and non-commercial photography is allowed.

There is a lift that goes to the top floor, which is a good place to start.  I do prefer stairs that go down.

  1. Fascinating! I loved the little remade old rooms you could explore as if stepping back in time. And then we went outside and followed the old city wall. There are little old grave plots scattered about between the modern condos. London is a fabulous place.

    • I’m a country boy really. Nevertheless I’ve become fascinated by the history of Britain and the past that shaped our present. 🙂

    • The upheavals in your part of the world must have obscured much of the past. I/we are pleased to share ours. 🙂

    • The sailor’s walk is very atmospheric. Although I wouldn’t want to meet a press gang. 🙂
