Surrey Docks Farm... South of the river in Rotherhithe.  Thames side location, super friendly volunteers, staff and animals.  Great cafe too.

Best pub award could go to Pepper St Ontiod.

Traffic Light Tree anyone?! Most definitely not something you see everyday :)


The Museum of London in Docklands is a fantastic place to learn about the history of the local area, and the Thames in general. You can discover a surprising amount of the area's past lives just by walking along the river and through the old docks - the Brunel Museum, Trinity Buoy Wharf,  the Ecology Park by Surrey Quays.


My favourite spot is Mudchute city farm - they have riding stables and a lovely city farm with plenty to see and do. It's just minutes from Crossharbour or Mudchute DLR, and it's the perfect place to relax and get some fresh air after too much time cooped up in the Wharf. Plus they have llamas!


My favourite spot is Reuters Plaza - perfect for lounging around in the sun (when weather permits) and observe the hectic atmosphere of everyone hurrying in/out of the tube station! London at its best. 


First thing that comes to mind: DLR! Best transport system in the capital.
