London Docklands

Docklands is the nickname for an area in East & South-east London, including the boroughs of Southwark, Tower Hamlet, Greenwich & Newham. The area used to be part of the Port of London, the largest port in the world at one point, now the area has been developed & is primarily used for commercial & residential use.

Rows of trees outside the Excel building
Creates an interesting effect, very simple, yet effective

I like the use of materials & colours, it is not a typical-looking kids play area, has a city vibe to it

St Katherine's Dock, near Tower Bridge
This is a really nice area, it is slightly secluded & gives you a sense of escape from the city.
