About:

Canary Wharf is the epicentre of the commercial and business sector in London and stretched beyond Tower Bridge as far as the Limehouse/Docklands area. Within easy reach of trendy East London with it's excellent transport links, Canary Wharf is ideal for those attending events, working in the area or even those who just want to stay outside of central London. Canary Wharf is home to several multi-million pound companies and it's reputation as a financial hotspot precedes it. But there is much more to Canary Wharf than pinstripe suits and stark office buildings.

What's in the area:

Once a derelict site, Canary Wharf now boasts impressive skyscrapers (One Canada Square is the second tallest building in London) and a bustling atmosphere. A great shopping destination with four shopping centres, over 200 shops (ranging from high street to luxury) and the flagship Waitrose Food & Home store, you will find everything you need here from storecupboard essentials to designer labels.

For those looking for a little culture on their trip to London, the nearby Museum of London Docklands can sate even the most discerning visitor with it's exploration of the history of Canary Wharf and Docklands and their important trading history.

If, for some reason, you would like a bit of an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, Mudchute Park and Farm is the place to go. With goats, pigs and even alpacas, it's an ideal spot for those with a young family or those suffering from city fatigue.

Sleek wine bars, historic pubs and dockside restaurants are the norm in this area and some of the best include Boisdales and Gaucho.

Greenwich is just across the river from Canary Wharf and easily accessible by train. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, some of the most popular attractions in London including the Cutty Sark, the National Maritime Museum and the Royal Observatory where you can straddle the iconic meridian line.

What we recommend:

  • Walk 10 minutes from the tube station to West India Quay for an array of restaurants, bars, a cinema & other amenities.
     
  • On the edge of the water lies Hazev restaurant, bar and deli, offering the best of Turkish dining in Canary Wharf.
     
  • Gaze up at One Canada Square from Iberica, an authentic tapas restaurant in Cabot Square
     
  • Greenwich Park for sweeping views across London.
