Heron Quays is a station on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) in the Heron Quays area of Canary Wharf in Greater London, England. The station is situated on the Isle of Dogs within the East End of London and serves the southern part of the Canary Wharf office complex and is directly connected to that complex's Jubilee Place underground shopping centre. The station is elevated and contained within one of the complex's office towers.

The station is in Travelcard Zone 2, and is on the Lewisham branch of the Docklands Light Railway, between Canary Wharf and South Quay.

History[edit]

Originally open-air, the station was moved 200 metres south (to fit inside the new buildings) and a longer platform was built at this new site to accommodate three-unit trains planned as part of the DLR Capacity Enhancement; the station re-opened on 18 December 2002.

Buses[edit]

London Buses routes 135, 277 and D7 and night route N550 serve the station.
