Canary Wharf: Things to do

Canary Wharf is one of London’s two main financial districts (along with the City of London), built on the site of the old West India Docks in London’s East End. It’s a mecca of sprawling skyscrapers and towering architecture that, understandably, receives thousands of visitors every day. That’s why we provide luxury serviced apartments in Canary Wharf – somewhere you can feel at home during your stay on business.

Whether you’re staying for just a couple of days or need to set up camp for longer, you can choose short term or long term serviced apartments in Canary Wharf that take all the stress out of travel. Our Canary Wharf apartments bridge the gap between boutique hotel and furnished apartment, leaving you with an elegant home from home, right in the middle of all the action.

Canary Wharf is a masterpiece of urban regeneration and modern architecture that can be seen for miles around, with a high-rise skyline featuring some of Europe’s tallest buildings. 

 This thriving business district is not just for bankers and brokers – Canary Wharf shopping is fantastic and with stylish bars and relaxed riverside dining there is so much going on in the heart of London’s vibrant East End, putting a world of diverse cultures and cuisines on your doorstep. 

Of course, the advantage of these tall buildings is that they offer unrivalled views across the rest of London, and you'll be hard-pressed to find short stay accommodation or other serviced apartments in London  with such fabulous vistas.

Canary Wharf Restaurants

Over 80 restaurants and cafés line Canary Wharf’s waterside, with stunning views of the modern skyline and the historic River Thames. If it's fine dining and drinks that you crave, make sure you opt for Trinity Tower, our serviced apartments in Canary Wharf located just a stone's throw away from the Michelin-starred Tom’s Kitchen, or any number of high end restaurant chains, unique gastropubs, fancy cocktail bars and classic wine bars.

There are plenty of international cuisines on offer too, from Mexican and Argentinian to Japanese and Spanish tapas. It’s a perfect spot for a business lunch with an impressive view, or a few hours of relaxed post-work drinking and dining. Staying in one of our Canary Wharf serviced apartments? With a fully equipped kitchen, you've also got the option to whip up some food yourself.

Canary Wharf Shopping

Canary Wharf’s main shopping mall is a good match for its sharp-suited corporate workforce, with plenty of luxury brands like Tiffany and Breitling alongside higher-end high street names, international labels and small designer boutiques.

The majority of Canary Wharf shops are open seven days a week until late in the evening and are easy to access from the Docklands Light Railway stations at Canary Wharf and West India Avenue.

Jubilee Place Mall is smaller but no less exclusive – it’s a great shopping location for gifts or designer brands, away from the crowds of the West End. 

Getting around Canary Wharf

Our apartments in Canary Wharf are easy to get to from all over London. The easiest route is via the Docklands Light Railway, which connects to the London underground network and uses the same ticketing system. There are also a number of bus routes that cover the area, including a night bus service so you can travel around the area 24 hours a day.

Why not take a slightly different route and navigate via the river instead? Either hop on a Thames Clipper or water taxi and head to Canary Wharf Pier. Or if you’re feeling energetic, you can take a riverside walk or cycle along the beautiful Thames Path. 

Things to look out for

Canary Wharf is home to the Museum of London Docklands, which explores the fascinating history of the Docklands and the River Thames from Roman times to today. A statue in front of the museum commemorates Robert Milligan, a merchant and ship owner who built the West India Docks.
