The Line Modern Art Walk (Stratford to North Greenwich) walk

A modern and contemporary art walk via foot, light rail and cable car

Start Stratford Main Line Rail/DLR/Overground/Underground station.
Finish North Greenwich Underground station.
Length

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).
Walk Notes

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 has a changing range of – currently – about ten sculptures displayed, all by prominent artists.
The route initially follows the River Lea, passes Three Mills Green & Water Mill (the largest tidal mill in the world) and the Film and Television Studios (London's largest) and then – a little further along The Lea – Cody Dock, an interesting community project on a former Gasworks site. After a short ride on the DLR you reach Royal Victoria Dock and take the cable car across the Thames.
The route then finishes with a stretch along the Thames Path rounding the O2-Dome, before turning to North Greenwich Underground Station and the neighbouring wide range of eateries and waterholes on the plaza and inside the Dome itself.
