London’s waterways: Royal Docks

 Registration is closed for this event

This event is now full! You're welcome to join the waiting list and we'll let you know if a place becomes available.

We're pleased to announce the next field trip in our major 2019 project, Making the Most of London's Waterways, to the Royal Docks.

With 15,000 homes and 40,000 jobs on the radar, the area is home to one of London's largest regeneration projects. As freeholder for much of the estate, the Greater London Authority has a real opportunity to deliver an innovative new London district with waterways at its heart.

Paul Creed, Head of Development & Placemaking for the GLA's Royal Docks team and his colleagues will explain the history and evolution of the Royal Docks as well as the current work to reactivate the area through its extensive waterways. 

Date: Tuesday, 16 July, 2 to 5 pm
Place: Royal Docks

We'll see:

  • The scale of development from the Emirates Air Line
  • Royal Victoria Dock and its beach
  • Part of the 20-hectare, mixed-use Silvertown Quays scheme, including Silo D and Millennium Mills
  • Thames Barrier Park
  • The new riverside neighbourhood of Royal Wharf and its innovative new pier

The field trip will include time for Q&A/discussion. Attendees are also invited to join us for post-tour networking drinks.


This event is free to attend thanks to support from supporters Arup, Avison Young, Hadley, Pollard Thomas Edwards, and the Port of London Authority, but places are limited and registration is essential.
