Due to their high incidences on the delta variant of Covid-19, the United Kingdom is still / again in the highest risk class in the German pandemic regulation. Traveling to the the country inevitably leads to a two week quarantine period, no exception to speed up. It is just some two months until the 2021/22 season of the Rock of Ages musical tour will start traveling through the country – so far, I can hardly estimate if I can really use my tickets and flights. I also really miss London, which I typically visit a couple of times per year. In one of my last times at the Thames, I spent some time in the Docklands area. This is a Pictured Story about the London Docklands, i.e. the focus is on major size pictures, less text, no rating.
London Docklands – Location & Transport
The pictures in this posting have all been taken on the Isle of Dogs penninsula. It is nowadays likely the most well-known part of the Docklands. The name of that area is really related to shipyards – the whole area was historically used for ship maintenance. Nowadays, especially the area which I walked through is majorly a financial and services district. I also had one hotel review at the Isle of Dogs so far – my thoughts about the Novotel London Canary Wharf were rather mixed, though. In other areas of the Docklands, I also stayed at the ibis London Canning Town. The area also has some touristic attractions like the interesting (and free entry) London Docklands Museum.
