Canary Wharf and the Museum of London at Docklands, Sunday 17 November 2013
We round off another year of Walks&Talks with Diane Burstein offering a combined walk showing a little of Canary Wharf and then taking us inside the Museum of London’s Dockland site.
We meet outside Canary Wharf tube station, by the clocks, and explore some of this magnificent modern development before heading over to the museum of Docklands.
Before going inside we will admire some of the old sugar warehouses and discover why the area was once known as “Blood Alley”. In the museum itself Diane will give you an introduction to some of the fascinating exhibits relating to the story of the Thames and the Docks.
Members might like to stay on after the group visit to explore more of the history of the area at your leisure. There are cafes in the museum and it is not far to walk back to the station, which also has places for food and drink.
We expect to have the programme for 2014 ready for this walk and hope you will find several of them interesting enough to earmark in your new diaries!
