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.
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.
