Canary Wharf

Your All In London guide to Canary Wharf

Famous for being the latest business development in the City, Canary Wharf is now growing rapidly in popularity. Canary Wharf itself is situated on the Isle of Dogs in London’s Docklands. Seen as the alternative square mile, Canary Wharf now has the three tallest buildings in the City, One Canada Square, the HSBC Tower and the Citigroup Centre.

Traditionally, this area was in fact a very busy port, but after suffering badly during the Second World War, the docks never really recovered and were closed in 1980. Since then, it has developed as a commercial centre and is now considered a hub for many financial institutions.

Residentially there isn’t very much activity in Canary Wharf, although more recently there has been an increase in high end flats for the professional worker.
