Museum of London Docklands unlocks the history of London's river, port and people. From Roman settlement to Dockland's regeneration, this former sugar warehouse reveals the long history of London as a port through stories of trade, migration and commerce, telling how the river Thames became a global gateway as it brought invaders, merchants and immigrants through one of the world's longest serving ports in the heart of the city. This beautifully illustrated history explores and celebrates the social and economic significance of the port of London which was at one time, the busiest in the world. It selects highlights from the rich and diverse collections at the Museum of London, Docklands to illuminate the 2000 year story of river, port and people.
