WEST INDIA DOCKS AND THE ISLE OF DOGS   iCal entry for this event

Tuesday 6th June 2017

1.30pm to 3.30pm


Meeting place: outside main (west) exit of Canary Wharf underground station (Jubilee line) at 1.20pm

We explore the history and legacy of London's first enclosed docks, the West India Docks, which opened in 1802.

From the old (Georgian sugar warehouses, Import, Export and South Docks) to the new (Norman Foster's tube station and his Crossrail with delicious roof garden, Jubilee Gardens, West Ferry Circus, Cabot and Canada Squares, inside One Canada Square - the tower itself), we will experience this extraordinary transformation, plus one of the best views London can offer. And why 'the Isle of Dogs'?
