One of London's lesser-known attractions, the Museum in Docklands, has been given a boost by a well-respected authority on tourism, it has emerged.
Global leisure and tourism brand Time Out recommended the museum as a key factor in making the most of a trip to the capital in one of its new publications.
The Time Out guide to Greenwich and Docklands invites visitors to make the most of one of London's most historic and fascinating areas.
Key transport info, including the area's unique Docklands Light Railway, is detailed for the benefit of those who have never visited this part of the city.
Museum in Docklands is currently holding an exhibition on Jack The Ripper, one of London's most notorious criminals who stalked the streets of nearby Whitechapel in the 1880s.
Several men believed to be Jack were hanged, but conspiracies still exist as to his true identity or even identities.
The Museum was opened in 2003 and holds a series of exhibitions exploring some of the rich history of the East End of London, of which Docklands has always been at the heart.
LondonPass holders can gain free entry to Museum in Docklands, saving adults the £5 price of admission.
