Canary Wharf has a fascinating history. From 1802 to the 1980s, the area that is now Canary Wharf was home to one of the busiest docks in the world, West India Docks, and played a prominent role in global trade. When the docks closed in the 1980s, redevelopment programs were initiated to bring investment and use to the area. The Canary Wharf that everyone knows today is largely thanks to Michael von Clemm, former chairman of Credit Suisse First Boston (CSFB), when he came up with the idea to convert it into a back office for businesses to use.

Plus, Canary Wharf also has its own airport, London City Airport, serving well over 30 destinations, so those that want to be near to their next business meeting at Deutsche can also jet off to NYC’s Wall Street or the heart of Frankfurt.

While it may be looked upon as a commercial neighbourhood, Canary Wharf still has enough attractions, activities and things to do to keep all its visitors entertained.

The weather in Canary Wharf is much like the rest of London, which is also like the rest of the UK; in short, it can be difficult to predict. The city of London is known for its cold winters (where temperatures fall below freezing), but also for its hot summers where temperatures can reach average highs of 24 degrees (or 35 degrees, like in 2019). But it’s fair to say that British summers are notoriously unpredictable, so wet-weather clothing is essential at any time of the year. The month of September is often a good time to visit as well, as the temperature is usually still warm, whilst being a little cooler than August in the evenings, making for a more comfortable stay.
So, overall, whether a guest is in Canary Wharf for business or leisure, the weather will hold many surprises for them.
