All Saints is in a residential part of Poplar. This is an area of London with a longstanding connection to the docks, which was its main source of employment in days gone past. In more recent years it has benefited from regeneration plans and from proximity to the huge new business and banking development of Canary Wharf. There are few hotels near All Saints Station itself, but there are plenty around Canary Wharf. The nearest accommodation to All Saints is Boardwalk London (****), which offers luxury one, 2 and 3 bedroom serviced apartments. Another option is the West India Quay Marriott Hotel (*****), which has a champagne bar and restaurant, and luxurious suites and guest rooms featuring floor to ceiling windows for a spectacular view. A less pricey All Saints hotel would be the Travelodge London Docklands. It is just off East India Road, where the tube station is located, and offers its standard quality en suite accommodation.
All Saints is a stop on the Docklands Light Railway in East London. It’s in Travelcard Zone 2 and is named after the church next door, which dates back to 1821. The entrance is on East India Dock Road, in the borough of Tower Hamlets.
The station on this site used to be called Poplar and was on the North London Railway of 1852. The Docklands Light Railway opened in 1987.
All Saints is the closest station to Chrisp Street Market, which has stalls selling plants, food, clothes, toys and home furnishings. It started off as a Victorian street market, but a pedestrianised shopping centre was built as part of the 1951 Festival of Britain. It was the first of its kind in the country and a landmark in new urban design.
Poplar Recreation Ground is nearby, which has a Bowls Club. More green space can be found at Bartlett Park. There is a new sports centre on the site of Poplar Workhouse.
There isn’t too much to see and do in the immediate vicinity of the station as this is a residential area of Poplar. The Museum in Docklands is the nearest major attraction, which has a fantastic collection that brings to life the history of London’s ports. There are exhibitions on customs and excise, the Dock police, restored vessels, wartime items, the slave trade, pirates and much more.
If you go down to Canary Wharf, which is not too far away, there are plenty of restaurants and entertainments to be found.
