6.9 km (walked) plus 2 stops on the DLR and the Emirates Air Line cable car over the Thames
|Time||2 hours and 20 minutes|
|Travel||Stratford Station is served by Main Line Services from Liverpool Street, by the Central and Jubilee Lines and by the DLR and the Overground. North Greenwich is served by the Jubilee Line. The two-stop DLR journey (Star Lane to Royal Victoria) often requires a change at Canning Town. The ‘Emirates Air Line’-cable car closes at 22.30 hours in summer and 21.00 in winter (2018 prices: £3.50 on Oyster Pay As You Go, £4.50 cash fare).|
This walk makes use of the The Line – London’s first dedicated modern and contemporary art walk, which is fully waymarked and split into three parts, which are linked by a short DLR ride and the Emirates Air Line cable car across the Thames. It was meant to display a changing and increasing range of sculptures, all by prominent artists. There are currently about ten of them, but more funds have been difficult to come by.
