Isle of Dogs Area Guide

Quiet streets, low rise buildings, a boating club and riding stables are the surprise attractions of the Isle of Dogs. This peaceful residential area is only a couple of stops down the Docklands Light Railway from the banks and high rise apartments of Canary Wharf but benefits from large tracts of water which would have once been the docking points for ships and now create picturesque views for the residents. Mudchute Park is a well-maintained green space, perfect for picnics and sunbathing and featuring the fun Mudchute Farm where you can feed the sheep and even hire out a horse.

Or maybe you feel like a hearty British fry up of beans, eggs and sausages at the farm café.If you’ve done all your shopping in nearby Canary Wharf’s extensive mall, hop on your bike and head across to Greenwich via the foot tunnel, accessed by a lift on the southernmost point of the Isle. Going out locally, Hubbub Bar and Café is a lunch-to-supper bar and burger venue in a converted Victorian Church. The Gun is a beautifully restored pub restaurant right on the river, on the east of the Isle, and mid-price local, The Pepper St Otiod, also offers waterside drinking with simple, delicious food and a retro interior.
