Slouching around London Royal Docks

A Sunday slouch around the London Royal Docks

My journey from the University of East London (Docklands campus) where I live via the Thames Barrier and the ExCeL exhibition centre.

I took the DLR from Cyprus to Canning Town, then to Pontoon Dock. Here I had a coffee in the lovely Cafe at the Barrier Park. After that I walked across the docks to the ExCeL exhibition centre. Had another coffee and then walked back to the University.

This is how it looked:
