Beckton Alp

The Beckton Alp was originally nothing more than a huge waste heap from Beckton gasworks (the largest gasworks in Europe, closed in 1969); it was landscaped in the 1980s to make a huge dry ski slope. The ski slope is no more, but the Alp is still there, providing a viewpoint over the Royal Docks.

Getting here: the Alp is located just southeast of the junction of Newham Way and Woolwich Manor Way.
