Both a major centre for business and an increasingly decent place to live, the London Docklands area has excellent transport links, in the form of both the Undergournd services and the DLR. Nestled on the banks of the Thames River, staying in the Docklands means that you’re minutes away from the city centre, at a reasonable price in comparison.

Stay overnight at the Travelodge docklands hotel which is a mere 3 and a half miles away from the O2 Arena in North Greenwich.
