Short Description

Named after the Westferry Road, which runs south from the station, past Westferry Circus, down the western bank of the Isle of Dogs. The station straddles the join between the areas of Canary Wharf, Poplar and Limehouse. The journey time is 8 minutes to Bank Station, and 7 minutes to Tower Gateway Station.

Consists of two raised platforms, very close to the riverside pubs in Limehouse and some railway arches. There's also a good view of the "big dipper" section, where eastbound Lewisham trains swing left, climb an incline, then swing right over the other tracks, into West India Quay station.
