Bow Church is a station on the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) in Bow in Greater London, England and is on the DLR's Stratford branch, between Devons Road and Pudding Mill Lane stations. It is within 300m walking distance of Bow Road station on London Underground's District and Hammersmith and City lines. Through ticketing is allowed between both stations. The DLR station opened with the original system on 31 August 1987. The station takes its name from the nearby 14th century Bow Church, which is a Church of England church.There is a crossover south of the station which allows trains from Stratford and Poplar to reverse here. One example of this is when the new platforms at Stratford were being constructed - trains were suspended between Bow Church and Stratford and trains from Poplar terminated here.ConnectionsFive London Buses routes serve this station: 25, 108, 205, 425, N205. Additionally 25 and 108 have a 24 hour service. Also routes 8, 276, 488 and the D prefix route D8 (towards Poplar only) serve the station indirectly by Bow Church.

  • Very beautiful church. I had my wedding here which was fantastic. The regular services are great and the congregation are a lovely bunch of people, who made my family and I very welcome. They also hold a range of events throughout the year.
  • One of the Most beautiful Church from outside, didn’t get a chance to go inside, since it was closed, but you can’t miss it if you are walking on the road!! Would love to visit sometime!
