More about Canary-wharf, London

If there’s one London district that attracts the modern business traveller, it’s Canary Wharf. This is the very centre of London’s business and financial transactions. The skyscrapers of JP Morgan, HSBC, Citigroup, Barclays and more show off the dominance of the area. Aside from all the corporate headquarters, the thriving hub consists of apartment buildings, retail space for shops, café and bars and annual events and exhibitions. Despite all the talk of business, Canary Wharf is as entertaining as any part of London.

The shopping centre, located underneath all the skyscrapers, is a popular hangout with workers during the lunch hour as well as partners who are scrambling to get something opulent before their return train home in the evening. Restaurants and cafes provide coffee and foodie fun while the area's other amenities like cinemas, ice rinks and temporary exhibits make it a pull for locals that want to pass the time. So much more than its corporate credentials, it can be the ideal spot to book a serviced apartment and live the high life while the office is only minutes away. No more long commutes are needed when corporate travellers can book an apartment in this great business space, and then head outside on the weekend by watching the latest flicks, buying something special for their loved one back home and tasting the best food that that area offers.                  

With the Thames and docks swirling around it, the area is fit for the modern world. Gone are the days of its abandonment, now it’s the centre of all the business talk and network lunches in London as well as Europe, and maybe even the world. Like New York’s financial district, the only way to tell the pulse of the global economy is to count the beats here.

History of Canary Wharf

With around 16,000,000 sq feet of office and retail space, this major financial sector is one of the main financial centres of the UK and the world, containing the third-tallest building in the UK, One Canada Square.

But where does its history start? Well, it started off as West India Docks, one of the busiest docks in the world. From 1802 to the 1980s, it was a beacon of trade and jobs. But as the port industry started to decline, the docks were closed. However, the story doesn’t end there. The British Government wanted to stimulate redevelopment of the area to ensure it still retained its place in the nation’s economy but from a modern perspective.

The London Docklands Development Corporation was set up to facilitate these proceedings, and when Michael von Clemm proposed using the space as a back office, the project soon took shape. Within the proposal was the idea for the Dockland Light Railway which would grant faster access from the East to Central Londo. These ideas were sold off to the Canadian company Olympia & York, with construction beginning in 1986. With the first buildings completed in 1991, including 1 Canada Square which was the biggest UK building at the time, the rest of the area soon fell into place.

As the original buyers and management went into bankruptcy, The Canary Wharf Group operated the rest of the proceedings making the area the go-to financial centre for Britain and much of the world. With over 120,000 visitors heading in every day, it’s not hard to say that Canary Wharf has been a success.
