Getting Here  

The Dockland Scout Project is on the Isle of Dogs, in East London. It lies just east of the financial City of London, and just across the River Thames to Greenwich, the maritime heart of the world. The centrepiece of the Project, the 'Lord Amory' vessel, is permanently moored just a few hundred metres from the Canary Wharf estate. This comprises of Europe's tallest skyscrapers, notably 1 Canada Square Tower (known as Canary Wharf) at over 800ft. These provide the Project with a stunning townscape backdrop, especially at night.

As well as the office buildings, there are several shopping malls beneath the Canary Wharf estate, a London Underground tube station and several Dockland's Light Railway Stations. In the opposite direction, the vast expanse of the Millennium Dome can be seen with views of the River Thames. The entrance to the West India Dock, where our ship is moored is accessed from the Thames by a lock entrance and pedestrian/road bridge, known as the Blue Bridge.
