Heron Quays

Heron Quays. Unlike Canary Wharf, this is one of the places in London whose name really means what is stated, for the Quay takes its name from the herons which at one time nested on the old buildings in this area, and maybe on a good day they can still be seen. All this was noted in the local City of London Recorder in 1987. A quay is a landing place for the loading and unloading of ships (from the Old French quai - an enclosure).

The station was opened on 31 August 1987.
