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.
