Step 1: Welcome to this waterside walk around Woolwich. This jaunt begins at the Woolwich Elizabeth Line station.
Step 2: Woolwich Elizabeth Line station is in Zone 4 and there is a regular service each day of the week. Woolwich Arsenal DLR station is only a 5 minute walk away.
Step 3: If you’re arriving by bus the closest stop to the start of this walk will be Woolwich Station on Victory Parade. Buses to and from Plumstead, Bluewater, Erith, Bexleyheath and Abbey Wood stop here.
Step 4: With the station behind you, walk straight ahead to enter Dial Arch Square. Continue walking ahead following the flat, paved path.
Step 5: On your right there will be a cannon, one of many you’ll encounter on this walk around Woolwich, as well as Dial Arch.
Step 6: The Dial Arch pub is an old munitions building. Notice the two pillars flanking the doorway. They’re each supporting a pyramid of cannonballs, and a lovely sundial sits in between.
