Please note that there is no District Line service on Sunday between Tower Hill and East Ham. There is a rail replacement bus service but it is recommended that you check the TfL Journey Planner as there may be better options, depending on where you are starting from. The c2c service from Fenchurch Street to Barking where you can pick up the District Line to Dagenham East might be good for many people.
