Travel Tips for visiting Canary Wharf

Canary Wharf is a business district of about 100 acres (40 hectares) developed along the Thames, located in East London in the Isle of Dogs. It is a lively neighborhood that is constantly growing. The big advantage is that the area is very safe. Canary Wharf has its own police force, which can reassure you if you want to visit the city safely. You can also take advantage of your free time to discover the cafés and restaurants of the area. The old Thames docks were in their heyday the most important port in London. Goods from all over the world and especially from the Canary Islands were sent from this port. It is one of the most mythical ports in the United Kingdom. Today, the port has become a historical monument and the largest financial center in the city. The commercial offer is enormous. You can enjoy a walk along the docks to discover the area and enjoy the beauty of the landscape. The neighborhood is home to very famous monuments, including the One Canada Square, which is 770 feet (235 meters) high tower. It is among the tallest living skyscrapers in London and one of the tallest in Europe. Then, the Olympic Park “Queen Elizabeth” built for the 2012 Summer Olympics, it is also the largest skyscraper created in Europe in the last 150 years.
