The Museum of London Docklands tells the story of London and the many transformations the docklands area has undergone.
The Museum of London Docklands is a museum in Poplar, East London which tells the history of London's River Thames and the growth of Docklands. The museum is part of the Museum of London jointly funded by the City of London Corporation and the Greater London Authority.
The museum building was originally No.1 Warehouse of the West India Docks. Opened in 1802, the West India Docks were London’s first enclosed dock system, built away from the open river on the Isle of Dogs. This gallery looks at how London’s historic docks and warehouses operated at the height of their success.
Up to 120 guests can dine in amongst the artefacts in the No.1 Warehouse gallery at the Museum of London Docklands, where the history of the building is brought to life.
The Museum of London Docklands is a venue with deep roots in the past, yet views of the futuristic Canary Wharf skyline envelop it in its stunning panorama.
This grade I listed venue, where contemporary fittings mingle with original Caribbean pitch pine columns and floors, offers a unique setting for meetings, presentations, product launches, drinks receptions and dinners.
