The City of London sits between what was once prime farmland to the west and poor, marshy ground to the east. On the opposite side is Trinity Buoy Wharf and the western end of the Royal Docks. For the latter, head east, along the river edge, to Westferry and Canary Wharf and then down through the heart of the Isle of Dogs toward Island Gardens, then perhaps under the old Victorian pedestrian tunnel that takes across to Greenwich. The compact area adjacent to the City and the Tower of London is not easily accessible except from Shadwell or Wapping stations or simply walk from St Katharines Dock. Use the Jubilee Line to Canary Wharf, and the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) to get to other parts. Use the DLR to Greenwich and the Jubilee Line to North Greenwich. One can easily walk to or from Lime house Basin to Stratford and to Greenwich along interesting routes.
