Canary Wharf Area Guide

Introduction to Canary Wharf

Canary Wharf is the financial center located in the East End of London (Tower Hamlets). Canary Wharf contains many of Europe's tallest buildings, including the second-tallest in Great Britain..

Museum of London Docklands

Free entry, this museum goes over the growth of the Docklands area and the revitalization of the River Thames. It wasn’t always a banker’s paradise, and in fact the area has a rich & interesting history. You can walk through a reproduction of a historical dock area, with costumed actors telling stories about life in that area!

Public Art Collection

There is lots of art publicly on display in Canary Wharf, so just having a wander around will net some interesting photography shots and perhaps even give you something to think about. The website linked will give you a bit of an overview of what to look for.

Surrey Docks Farm

A farm so near Canary Wharf? Well, it’s true! Children especially enjoy the opportunity to hang out with some donkeys, cows, and pigs. Another very cool feature on this working farm is the blacksmith - it’s the only farm in the city where a blacksmith will put on live demonstrations. It’s certainly an interesting craft that few of us have ever seen done in person!

Billingsgate Market

There is a fish market-the UK’s oldest and most iconic fish market, just out in Docklands. It is really early morning market for all different kind of seafood. Billingsgate is open 4am-8am Tuesday to Saturday, close at Sunday and Monday.If you like fish and cook, billingsgate market is the best place for you to explore.
