The DLR runs on tracks above ground. Use Oyster card for savings. Not much more to say. It's a frequent service and good for getting to London Stadium.

As we were staying near the Excell we used the DLR all the time. This system is one of the best we have used with the trains being totally wheelchair friendly. The services were very frequent and trains clean. Good interlink to Lundon Underground.

start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster
Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square,
