Blackwall is a station on Docklands Light Railway (DLR) in Blackwall in east London. The station is close to the northern entry to the Blackwall road tunnel under the Thames.

Blackwall station is on the Beckton branch of the DLR between Poplar and East India stations, and is in Travelcard Zone 2.

The DLR station opened, with the Beckton Branch, on 28 March 1994. There was a previous station on the same site, called Poplar station, which was served by the London and Blackwall Railway from 6 July 1840 to 3 May 1926.
