A blog by @AJBC_1 about things going on around Gallions Point, East London – mainly boats but could be other things too.
DSEi is back in town
Every two years the Royal Docks actually has multiple large ships in it – not the numbers of it’s heyday but as the waters are normally devoid of large ships it is an impressive sight to see.
The cause of the sudden influx of maritime visitors is the Defence exhibition taking place at London’s Excel exhibition centre and the DSEi show makes full use of the dock waters to provide additional exhibition space.
Here are some pictures of the ships arriving in the Royal Docks.
