Royal Docks :: Shared Description

The Royal Docks are three large docks in East London, known as the Royal Victoria Dock (opened 1855), the Royal Albert Dock (opened 1880), and the King George V Dock (opened 1921).

During their heyday most of imported goods to London came through the Royal Docks which were the largest enclosed docks in the world. They were closed in the 1980's, and now form part of a redeveloped Docklands.
