transport for london website. I've mentioned this a few times now...........

The address of the Prospect of Whitby is 57 Wapping Wall, Wapping, Greater London, E1W 3SH

You would go to this website
https://tfl.gov.uk/

Fill in the From Box with Greenwich
Fill in the to box with 57 Wapping Wall

You will find that if you learn to do this yourself, it will be far less time consuming than coming on this forum and asking the same question. Don't get me wrong, you are welcome here. It is just that the teacher in me can't help but think that teaching you how to do this for yourself is a better choice for you.

Thank you for the information regarding tfl. Thinking beyond that rather confusing route, is there an easy route on the Thames?

Closest stop via Uber Boat by Thames Clippers seems to be Canary Wharf.
You could take that to Canary Wharf and then take the D3 Bus to Shadwell Basin.
Would be a little bit of walking involved also.

On the TFL website you can adjust your preferences to riverbus only if you like, but you’ll see that there’s no convenient boat stop near the Prospect of Whitby.

If I choose that option, it tells me to get a boat from Canary Wharf to Tower Bridge and then walk back east along the river path, but it would take you half an hour.

Or you could walk from Canary Wharf west - at a rough guess it would take about an hour.

Basically the pub is a great stop if you are walking the Thames Path between Tower Bridge and Canary Wharf, which is a fascinating walk. But there isn’t a convenient boat stop there.

Incidentally you will also find Citymapper really helpful.

Thanks Golden Girl I'll investigate Citymapper. I maybe should have mentioned that I have two grandchildren in tow, and may have to eliminate Greenwich, which would be a shame.

Golden Girl has already given a detailed answer about getting there “on the Thames”. Using the DLR is easy.

Greenwich is great. Not sure how old your grandchildren are, but it’s s good place for kids.

Whereas if they are kids, you don’t want to be taking them to the Prospect of Whitby as it’s a pub!
