City Living - Focus On Canary Wharf

Located east, in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets is the financial capital of the city; Canary Wharf. Known for its high-rise offices, three shopping centres and docklands, this area is a hub of activity with an exhilarating atmosphere.

With London City Airport located nearby serving 30 locations, and fantastic transport links into the city centre, it's easy to see why Canary Wharf is one of the most sought-after areas in the capital. 

The district was founded by Canadian property tycoon Paul Reichmann in 1987 and later taken over by Saudi Arabia’s Prince Waleed bin Talal in 1995. Now the area is as prominent as ever. 

By day, office workers make their way to the hustle and bustle of the business district and by night it’s a hotspot for after work drinks and offers an abundance of restaurants. The area also hosts over 100 art events each year. Canary Wharf is one of London’s greener areas offering various parks including Jubilee Park, a roof garden built above an underground railway station. 

Highlights and Attractions

There are many local bars, restaurants and cafes on offer in this popular area. 

Located just a 15-minute walk down the road on the pebbled Limehouse Reach is The Grapes, a beloved East End pub that’s almost 500 years old. This hidden gem is owned by Sir Ian McKellen and overlooks the Thames in a peaceful residential neighbourhood. The pub draws in a generous crowd, especially on Mondays when they host their weekly quiz night. 

If you meander just down the pebbled road from The Grapes, you will stumble across The Narrow by Gordon Ramsay. With panoramic views overlooking the Thames and a backdrop of London’s sleek skyline, this restaurant, bar and terrace provides a relaxing escape from the lively buzz of Canary Wharf’s nightspots. 


Canary Wharf is extremely well connected to the city with the Docklands Light Railway offering direct access to Bank and Tower Gateway stations in around 20 minutes and the Jubilee line which stops at main stations such as Canada Water, London Bridge, Westminster and Bond Street to name a few.
