London, United Kingdom

Emirates Royal Docks


Royal Victoria Station is on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) in Canning Town, east London. The station opened in 1994 and is named after the nearby Royal Victoria Dock. It is on the DLR's Beckton branch, in Travelcard Zone 3, and is the nearest station for the northern terminus of the Emirates Air Line cable car and for London's new City Hall.

The station is located on a stretch of line first opened in 1855, when the Eastern Counties Railway (ECR) was forced to divert its line to North Woolwich (the former Eastern Counties and Thames Junction Railway) around the newly opened Royal Victoria Dock. This line went on to become part of National Rail's North London Line, although there was never a station at the site until the coming of the Docklands Light Railway.
