Custom House

Custom House takes its name from the building which once stood at the north side of the Victoria Docks and today still gives its name to a district in this part of London. The area was developed as a working class residential working district from the 1880s onwards.

The station was opened in 1885 as Victoria Dock on the North Woolwich Railway. When the line was re-developed in the 1980s the station s name was changed to Custom House. The adjacent DLR station opened on 28 March 1994.
