A new guided tour of some of London’s iconic landmarks is set to be introduced to the DLR.
DLR Discovery train rides will take in sites including Tower Gateway, Cutty Sark and Canary Wharf.
Tour guides will be on board trains as they go along the raised tracks every Saturday and Sunday from August 4 to September 9 every hour from 10am.
Trish Ashton, general manager of the DLR, said: “DLR Discovery tours are an exciting addition to our services and a perfect day out for families, visitors and locals alike.
“I hope people from across the city, as well as those visiting London, take the chance to ride the special, non-stopping train between two world-famous London landmarks, and gain insight into a historically fascinating area of east London.”
Tickets cost £8 for adults and £4 for children, including a return journey.
