A little known gem, the Sunborn is a fully functioning hotel held on a yacht next to the ExCel centre. You can go here just for the bar, as well as the half price buffet breakfast at the weekend too!

Run or Dye

Run or Dye

The most fun you can have with a pair of trainers, never mind the mad dashing through colour stations where you're attacked with sachets of dye. There's also a music festival of colour! Run or Dye takes place not only in London, but all around the country and world.

Up at the O2

A really good day out scaling the roof of the O2. Once at the top you can see across East London and you are directly in the flight path for City Airport, with the chance to take some good pictures of the landscape!

If you're cooking up a seafood dinner, this is the place to go to pick up high-quality and reasonably priced fish - way better than the supermarket.

Why not explore the nearby areas of Woolwich, North Greenwich, Charlton, Upton Park, Plaistow, Poplar, West Ham and Upton

"At Trinity Buoy Wharf, you can see some of the most unusual accommodation in London, made from brightly coloured shipping containers!"

Factory and warehouse conversions in the east end of London make characterful homes.

London Docklands are full of striking buildings and structures that dominate the skyline.

Woolwich is affordable, it has great transport links, fantastic people and the new General Gordon Place is extraordinary.

What locals say about Royal Docks

  1. You can gaze over the shimmering water of the great, historic dock in the morning in a five minute walk to the DLR station. There are new restaurants, bars and shops appearing every week and it is fast becoming a bustling young community. Cross Rail is coming and the buzz is growing - it's fantastic.

  2. I love how tranquil it is along the Thames, whilst having a great amount of contemporary art and history nearby.

About Royal Docks

The Royal Docks comprise three docks in east London - the Royal Albert Dock, the Royal Victoria Dock and the King George V Dock. They are more correctly called the Royal Group of Docks to distinguish them from the Royal Dockyards, Royal being due to their naming after royal personages rather than Crown ownership. The three docks collectively formed the largest enclosed docks in the world, with a water area of nearly 250 acres (1.0 km2) and an overall estate of 1,100 acres (4.5 km2). This is equivalent to the whole of central London from Hyde Park to Tower Bridge. Transport for London is continuing to develop the transport infrastructure of the Royal Docks with a further extension of the Docklands Light Railway.
