Fenchurch Street

We have included Fenchurch Street station for two reasons. It is a terminating station in London and you could, possibly, arrive here from Southend (airport) or Tilbury (docks).

It’s a small station. There’s a coffee shop on the left but little else, and just a few platforms. It always looks a bit neglected, like the old Broad Street station before it closed, but we guess it must be busy during the week with commuters.

How to get to central London?

Tube/Docklands Light Railway

None. This railway station famously has no Underground or DLR connections.

It’s not miles to walk to Tower Hill (Circle and District) or Tower Gateway (DLR, if it’s still there). Just come out of the station, turn left and keep walking.


No bus. Again, walk to nearby the Tower of London for buses heading west.


There’s no taxi stand. If you are lucky, you may catch a free cab on one of the local roads. If not, try near to the Tower, or walk up to the actual Fenchurch Street.

If you are coming in on this route, you may find it easier to change at Barking (Overground, District and Hammersmith lines) or Limehouse (DLR).

If you are in the area with spare time, well, it’s a great, historic area to ramble. There are some nice old pubs, genuinely old. There’s the Tower, Tower Bridge, the Monument, St Katharine’s Docks, the river and so much more.
