For your visit
Royal Wharf Community Dock
From adult ballet classes to dance and drama classes for kids, this new centre in the heart of Royal Wharf has begun with a bang.
A local fixture since 1901, this pub seems untouched since its post-war refurbishment. Step back in time and enjoy a pint over a game of darts.
Royal Wharf Gardens
In this garden in the centre of the Royal Wharf development, you'll find a memorial to the Silvertown Explosion.
