A visit to Docklands

Although the view from the back of our house is rather dominated by the buildings in Docklands, London, Sue and I rarely go there. Today was an exception.

Early last week Sue had discovered that the latest Daring-class Type 45 Destroyer – HMS Duncan – was paying a visit to London and was going to be moored alongside the Thames Quay in Docklands. Furthermore, it was possible to book tickets to visit her ... so we booked some.


At just before 1.00pm today we arrived at Thames Quay via the DLR (the Docklands Light Railway), passed through the security screen, and boarded HMS Duncan.


We stayed aboard for the best part of an hour, and I managed to take lots of photographs which will be featured in a forthcoming blog entry.
