Description: This part of London can in some ways be considered to be an extension of the city centre, housing some well-known areas of both historical and economic importance. The Docks were formerly the Port of London, already existing in Roman times, they were once among the biggest and most active ports in the world. When the port activity fell into decline the area was renovated to become a residential and commercial hub within the city and is now home to a number of luxury buildings, shops and the headquarters for many companies. The most representative symbol of the Docklands is Canary Wharf that owes its name to the commercial dock for the Canary Islands and is the location of three of the tallest buildings in Great Britain, the headquarters of the citys second financial district. Londons City Airport is also close by and especially important for business travellers flying from the UK to the rest of Western Europe.
After its development and particularly with the airport the area underwent a very important change and currently houses a huge variety of bars, restaurants, night life venues and shopping centres as well as the Upton Park football stadium.
From the Isle of Dogs visitors can admire the modern building of the Millenium Dome. The building is dome-shaped and unique in the world for its kind. It was built to house an important exhibition and organized to celebrate the beginning of the third millennium; in fact it was opened to the public on 1st January 2000 and closed exactly one year later. It is a clear homage to the Greenwich Meridian and time itself; the diameter of the structure is exactly 365 metres and it is made up by a large white marquee with yellow protruding towers there are twelve towers representing each month of the year and each hour on the clock face.
A little further on from the Docklands and across the Thames is one of the most world-famous locations in London marking the point that since the XIX century is Meridian Zero Greenwich. It is also famous for being the home of the Royal Palace since the XV century. Around the 1700 period the area became a famous resort for the richest families in London and many had their second holiday home here. It is a great spot from which to admire the fabulous views of Canary Wharf. It is also a recommended choice for visiting its distinctive market that has been held here since the XIV century, opening five days a week and dedicated to different products each day, for example on Thursdays and Fridays antiques, arts and crafts whilst at weekends it reunites sellers of crafts and second-hand articles as well as food stalls. In the area surrounding the market there are numerous bars, pubs and restaurants not to mention the buildings surrounding it the Royal Observatory at the top of the park and Greenwich villa that is also home to Londons Maritime Museum.
