DLR Discovery - Explore East London by train

The Docklands area of east London is known for its vibrant neighbourhoods and rich culture, but how much do you know about its heritage and traditions? For a limited time this summer, TfL and the DLR are offering you the chance to learn more about the background of this diverse area of the capital and the hidden gems located along its route.


DLR Discovery is an exclusive service with a professional tour guide on board, who will offer an informative and engaging commentary to bring the route to life as the DLR travels between two of London’s most iconic destinations, Tower of London and Cutty Sark.


The train will take you on a journey through time past some of the most well-known sights in east London, including the skyline of Canary Wharf, Billingsgate Market, Limehouse Basin and the Cutty Sark. You will be introduced to some new sights along the way including Crossrail Place with its Elizabeth Line station and an amazing roof garden. The DLR has served this area for over 30 years and contributed enormously to the growth and regeneration of the capital.


After arriving in Greenwich, DLR Discovery will continue with a guided walking tour around the historic heart of Greenwich, giving you the opportunity to learn more about the World Heritage Site.
