Canary Wharf is just 10 minutes from London Bridge and another 10 minutes from Bond Street. If that point clicks for you, then you can try Canary Wharf for sure. Being a financial hub there is very little to do here sometimes but it is a peaceful place. I have been living here for 3 years. Never had anything to complain about.
I have been a regular visitor to the Fisherman’s Walk for grabbing a drink. The Cat and the Canary is a happening place for beer and sports. Fine Line is another great riverside wine pub.
