Housing the Island: Building Homes on the Isle of Dogs

  • Heron Quays DLR Station E14 (map)

The Isle of Dogs had a rich history of public housing, including outstanding 1920s Homes for Heroes estates built by radical Poplar councillors in the era before the Docklands Development Corporation. But private housing has come to dominate the Island in just a generation, since the creation of Canary Wharf. Discover more about public and private housing on this fascinating tour of the western Isle of Dogs, ending near Mudchute DLR.
