With most of the track being over ground, windows on all sides (no driver to block the view) you get an excellent view of London, Canary Wharf etc. Great way to travel around East London.

Great way to get around East London. When it is not crowded it is very scenic. We were staying in Canning Town and found it very useful for getting around. We would recommend.

up the road as well. As captivating as the
architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are
