"Docklands Light Railway" Docklands Light Railway (DLR) Tip by mke1963

Docklands Light Railway (DLR), London: 22 reviews and 38 photos


The DLR is quick and easy, although it is frustrating that so much of it is so high up in the air. The driverless trains zip around the whole of the Docklands area but the connections to the main tube system is awkward, to say the least.

t is essential, if you are using an Oyster Card that you log in and out before and after each journey: if not, the Oyster Card will be debited with a considerably larger sum than you might imagine. The card readers are sometimes a little difficult to find.

Type: Subway/Metro
