The South East England region

Docklands / Canary Wharf area - Until about 1800, the Isle of Dogs was a marshy agricultural area. Some say that the name Isle of Dogs came about because Henry VIII kept his hunting dogs on the island. Once the docks were built c. 1800, the waterways of the docks cut off the southern part of the area making it truly an island.

In 1988 construction work began at Canary Wharf. The area has been transformed into a high rise financial and business centre. However, many of the docks and their machinery still survive providing an added attraction to the area.

Central London/Zone 2

The Olympic Park is less than 4 miles / 7 kms from the apartment.

The warehouses around Docklands' West India Quay are the best preserved in London and now house a selection of bars and restaurants.

The Museum of London Docklands occupies a Georgian warehouse on the banks of the West India Quay. It's a great place to visit and explore 12 galleries of artefacts, paintings, engravings and photographs charting the history of the area from the Romans right through to the present day.

The Docklands Sailing and Watersports Centre is a 2 minute walk away and holds activities, such as dragon boating, sailing, windsurfing or kayaking/canoeing. Non members are welcome. Twilight sailing is very popular with members and non members alike. This takes place on Wednesday evenings starting at 6.00 pm and sailing is followed by a relaxing barbecue. Non members are charged just £25.00 for their evening of sailing, including the barbecue. If you just want to watch and enjoy the après sail barbecue, this will cost you just £15.00. Please see http://www.dswc.org

Mudchute Farm and Park is Europe's largest urban farm and is overlooked by Canary Wharf's skyscrapers. It is a 15 minute walk from the apartment and you could easily be in the British countryside rather than a stone's throw away from the skyscrapers. Take a horse ride through the 12.5 hectares (31 acres) of open parkland or meet the sheep, pigs, ducks and geese at the farm. Take a picnic and you can even join the llamas for lunch! Entry is free.

Shopaholics and and food lovers are well catered for in Canary Wharf with a choice of more than 200 shops, bars and restaurants. Luxurious brands such as Tiffany & Co., Jo Malone and Montblanc sit side-by-side with high street names such as Topshop, Reiss, Whistles and Zara. There is also a selection of quintessentially British brands such as Aspinal of London, and Hackett as well as smaller independent shops and designer boutiques.

Canary Wharf hosts lots of public events such as open air and indoor concerts, the London Ice Sculpting Festival, comedy nights, and movie screenings. Many events are free and for more information please visit www.mycanarywharf.com

If jazz, blues and soul is your thing, then check out Boisdale of Canary Wharf. Live music is played six nights a week with fantastic views of Canary Wharf. The Scottish themed restaurant also offers the finest beef, lamb, game and seafood and, if you like whisky, the bar in the restaurant holds over 1,000 bottles of malt whisky and claims to be one of the most extensive and magnificent whisky bars in the world.

"A memorable experience!"

Our two week stay at Nicholas and Yvonne's apartment exceeded our expectations in every way. Nicholas set the standard with excellent communication when we were researching where to stay. The apartment is large,bright,clean,modern,well appointed and quiet. The view and the boat traffic on the Thames was a great source of entertainment and since it's west facing over the river,the benefactor of some great sunsets.
Our one concern before we arrived was the bus ride to the Canary Wharf Tube station which turned out to be a non-issue because there is a bus every five minutes for a five minute ride. We found eating and shopping at Canary Wharf convenient with everything we needed.
Nicholas met us when we arrived and gave us a thorough tour of the apartment and presented us with a well stocked kitchen so we got through our first night without the hassle of shopping after a ten hour flight. We have visited London many times ,always staying in hotels previously. Having the benefit and convenience of this apartment made it a very memorable experience.

"Superb Stay"

Beautiful apartment situated on the Thames close to the hub of Canary Wharf. The area was quite peaceful but with enough things close at hand such as restaurants, mini markets and the DLR with easy access both to Greenwich and Central London. It was ideal for our party of 6, including Grandma, Mum and Dad and 3 kids, to watch Dad do the London Marathon as the route passes straight past the apartment. Although we didn't get to meet Nicholas the owner he was very attentive to ours needs ensuring the apartment complex staff were at hand to guide us in and the apartment contains plentiful information for a pleasant stay in London. Can't wait to go back!
