Royal Victoria DockA beneficiary of the Docklands regeneration scheme, Royal Victoria Dock offers panoramic views over the water with the modern structures and the ExCel London Exhibition Centre reflected in the water's surface. In the distance, the towering office blocks of Canary Wharf and the dome of The O2 Arena are clearly visible. Once a thriving working dock, the water's purpose is less industrial and more recreational these days with the Royal Victoria Watersports Centre the place to go for sailing and canoeing activities.
