As we proceed to towards central London we enter Docklands, the area that was once the thriving heart of London’s international trade but which as ships became larger and ways of transporting cargo changed became redundant. The area has now been regenerated into one of homes, offices, shopping and leisure activities although in many places it still uses the old dock basins now changed from a commercial use to a leisure use. It is an area of innovative design and architecture.

Reminders of the area's history can still be found like this dock basin entrance
