George Augustus Frederick; 12 August 1762 – 26 June 1830, was declared Regent of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and Hanover in 1810 as the mental condition of his father, George III, deteriorated. He was known as the Prince Regent. He led an extravagant and dissipated lifestyle. Upon his father's death in 1820 he became George IV, reigning until 1830. The decade from 1810 became known as the Regency and influenced fashion and architecture. If anybody know why the DLR station is called the Prince Regent please let us know, as this is a mystery. The station opened on the 28th March, 1994.
Prince Regent DLR provides access to the eastern end of the ExCeL Exhibition Centre and ICC London. The station signage is subtitled 'for ExCeL East'. There is a small bus station adjoining the station with buses to Plaistow and London City Airport. The station is located on the DLR's Beckton branch, between Custom House and Royal Albert stations. It is in Travelcard Zone 3. During major exhibitions at the adjacent Excel Centre an additional DLR shuttle service operates between Canning Town and Prince Regent stations, to supplement the normal Tower Gateway to Beckton service. The trains shuttle reverse on a crossover well to the east of the station, within sight of the next station at Royal Albert.
Connections: London Buses routes 147, 300, 325, 473 and 678 and night route N551 serve the station.
