From Roman settlement to the development of Canary Wharf, this 200-year-old warehouse reveals the long history of the capital as a port, through stories of trade, migration and commerce. Discover a wealth of objects in state of the art galleries, including 'Sailortown', an atmospheric recreation of 19th-century London; and 'London, Sugar & Slavery', which reveals the city’s involvement in the transatlantic slave trade.
