The area is one of London’s, and the worlds, premier business and shopping districts. West India Dock was one of the busiest ports in the world, with most of the cargo originating from the Canary Islands, which is how the area claimed its name. Today it’s a very different scene where skyscrapers housing top FTSE 500 companies dominate Canary Wharf’s skyline and support a workforce of some 150,000 business people.
A city within a city, everything you need is on your doorstep. As impressive as the glimmering office towers so too is what lies beneath ground.

With literally hundreds of top end designer stores, boutiques and high end brands as well as beauty and fitness, then as many restaurants, bars and galleries, whatever you’re shopping for, you’re certain to find it here!
Conveniently located just across the Thames is the O2, which attracts some of the biggest names in rock, pop and classical music as well as staging major sporting events and theatrical productions like Cirque du Soleil.
