Island Gardens, London
(4.2/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
Island Gardens is a Docklands Light Railway (DLR) station in Island Gardens, east London, just north of the River Thames. It is in Travelcard Zone 2.The station is close to the southern tip of the Isle of Dogs and the River Thames. Island Gardens is a public park with a notable view across the river to the classical buildings of the former Greenwich Hospital and the National Maritime Museum, with Greenwich Park forming a backdrop. The northern entrance of the Greenwich foot tunnel is within the park.DevelopmentThe original Island Gardens DLR station was opened on 31 August 1987 as the southern terminus of the initial system. It was built adjacent to the site of the old North Greenwich railway station, the southern terminus of the Millwall Extension Railway. It was elevated with two platforms, each capable of accommodating a single car train. The station required significant rebuilding to allow the platforms to take two-car trains.The extension to Lewisham passes under the River Thames in a deep tube tunnel. This required a new station to be built slightly further away from the river, north of Manchester Road, and underground. The original station and the southern end of the connecting viaduct have since been demolished.

  • Nice calming park with great views if Greenwich and the Cutty Sark. Nice cafe with a lovely selection of beverages.
  • A great little park with excellent views of Greenwich.
  • Nothing special, take the tunnel to Greenwich! The other side is much better! Cheap ice cream at the north entrance of the Thames foot tunnel!
  • Small park on the river walk, mainly notable for great views over the river to Greenwich.
  • Awesome place to go, especially to take pictures
