Bow Church, London

Bow Church is a Docklands Light Railway (DLR) station in Bow, in London, England. It is between Devons Road and Pudding Mill Lane stations. It is interlinked by an out of station interchange (OSI) within 300m walking distance via Bow Road with Bow Road station on London Underground's District and Hammersmith and City lines. The two Bow stations are classed as a single station for ticketing purposes as well as on tube maps but both managed separately. Opened with the original system on 31 August 1987. The station takes its name from the nearby 14th century Bow Church, which is a Church of England church.

There is a crossover south of the station which allows trains from Stratford and Poplar to reverse here.

One example of this is when the new platforms at Stratford were being constructed - trains were suspended between Bow Church and Stratford and trains from Poplar terminated here.

The station is accessible via lifts to both platforms and it has ticket machines and oyster pads

  • To be honest, I'm glad I had the actual address, because when you get off the tube, the map says St. Mary's which is hard since the locals call it Bow Church. It is in the center of this traffic...  more »
