London's Docklands: the Lost Quarter

Free Lunchtime lecture by author and historian Fiona Rule

Known collectively as the Royal Docks, the Victoria, Albert and King George V Docks formed the most visually impressive section of the Port of London; a sprawling network of quays, ancient wharves, deep canals and high-walled basins that stretched along the River Thames from the City to Tilbury. This talk by Fiona Rule will provide a fascinating insight into London's Docklands and is the result of extensive research into an area of London taht has intrigued her for many years.

Fiona Rule is the author of "The Worst Street in London" and the newly published "London's Docklands: a history of the lost quarter".
