Poplar is an East End district and forms part of the London Docklands. Heavily bombed in World War 2, the area has managed to successfully revive itself which is still continuing today with ongoing regeneration. You’ll find a handful of shops, bars and restaurants here and Chrisp Market which is well worth a visit. If you do, however, find that the area is lacking in choice for somewhere to grab a bite to eat or indulge in some retail therapy, you’ll be pleased to learn that Canary Wharfs gleaming towers are just a couple of miles away. Here you will find over 300 shops, cafes, bars, restaurants and a cinema. If you wanted to venture a bit further afield you can do so with ease as Poplar has its own DLR (Docklands Light Railway) station. There is, unfortunately, no tube station here but the DLR can connect you to many of these if required. If you are planning on staying local to the area, there are several nearby attractions that are worth considering. These include the Museum of London Docklands, O2 Walkway: Up At The O2 and Madchute Park and Farm. All of these can be reached in less than a 30-minute walk.
