Interesting buildings and it's kept beautifully clean and all the shops and restaurants are hidden underground leaving bright, open spaces and some lovely parks to discover.

Very busy, a lot of tourists taking pictures - plenty of places to eat and a lot of shops. Caters for people who have a fair bit of cash.

Lots of shopping and restaurants. Surprisingly, everything is still fairly busy on weekends when you would expect office building areas to be rather vacant. Some places do cater more to the work crowd. Plenty of people live in the area to keep it lively all...More

Ended up here on a rambling day out in London. Very modern and interesting, if a little imposing. The main gardens are nice but it didn’t feel welcoming for kids.

This is an incredibly glossy, shiny, towering, "future city". Don't go mid week, that would be a nightmare. The place is rammed with business, commercial and international bankers. At the weekend, it empties out and you are left with a low level buzz. You have...More

Worth a visit if you’re in the area. A little awkward getting round because of some of the walk ways being closed for building works. Amazing to to see these iconic buildings normally seen on the news. It is quiet over a weekend so a...More

This is the financial powerhouse of London with a huge tube station to accommodate the many workers. Some nice buildings in the area.

The Boisdale is the only restaurant I've visited lately at Canary Wharf. Its prices tend to be at the top end of the scale. You pays your money you takes your choice.
