The London 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.

"Truly riverside luxury and more than a home from home."

We were greeted with a warm welcome from Nicholas. The apartment was beyond our expectations for a short stay holiday rental, with all the comforts and mod-cons of home. A welcome touch was Nicholas had provided provisions beyond tea, coffee & milk.

The apartment is ideally located a short walk from Crossharbour DLR and Canary Wharf, making London City Airport and central London easily accessible.

A pleasure and hope to stay again.

"Beyond our expectations"

If you are looking for a place to stay while in London - look no further! As soon as I saw the photos for this apartment I knew I had found something really special. This was not our first experience in renting a holiday property but was by far our best experience. Nicholas could not have been more helpful, he was extremely prompt getting back to us with any inquiries we had, and meeting him on the day we arrived was an absolute pleasure. He provided us with a complete tour of the unit then went on to give us some invaluable advice about places to see and the best way to get around London. He also made sure we were well supplied with food to get us through the first day which was a such a thoughtful thing to do for weary travellers. The unit itself is extremely clean, bright and perfectly located if you are looking for a quiet place to put your feet up at the end of those busy days of site-seeing. The apartment is located within a few minutes walk of the bus-stop which will then drop you close to the Canary Wharf underground station, then it's a short ride to the busy heart of the city. If you prefer the above-ground train there is easy access to that as well, although it is a bit further to walk, but it is a really pleasant and safe-feeling area to walk through. There is a grocery store along the bus route if you need to dash in for a few items, or a larger one not far away if you are planning on cooking in and need to stock up with a larger amount of supplies. There were 6 adults in our party (3 couples) and we never felt crowded, there is plenty of space to spread out and relax. The living/dining room is furnished with a nice entertainment system, plenty of light and lots of comfortable seating for 6 people. The balcony that opens off that area (which overlooks the Thames) has a table and chairs for you to sit and enjoy the beautiful sunsets, or an early morning cup of coffee. The apartment is also well supplied with plenty of reading material if you forget to bring your favourite novel. The beds were super comfy, bathrooms supplied with everything you will need (hair dryers, soaps, shampoos, and other assorted toiletries). The kitchen is completely stocked with everything you will need if you decide to cook. Although we were on vacation we still ended up cooking a few meals there and it was such a great space for we cooks to gather to make meals and share a glass of wine and some laughs about the day's adventures. I could go on and on but you get the idea.........stop looking and just trust me.........this is the place you want to stay! We will most definitely be back if we are lucky enough to visit London again in the future. Thanks again Nicholas, for everything!
