15 November 2021 / Area Guides, Buying, Renting

Canary Wharf offers a world class selection of restaurants, shops and bars, many with waterside locations and wonderful views across the River Thames. Try Boisdale of Canary Wharf, The Gun on Coldharbour, Le Secret Des Rotisseurs, Roka at Canary Wharf, or if you are looking for a waterside view visit The Tea Merchant.

For those with an interest in history the London Museum Docklands, which has exhibitions focusing on the history of the area, is worth a visit. Canary Wharf is also home to one of the UK’s largest collections of public art which you can see by simply walking around the area through the docks, parks and skyscrapers.

Canary Wharf is popular with professional buyers and renters alike, who are looking for the convenience of the business district on their doorstep. There is a range of good schools in Canary Wharf to accommodate the growing number of families living in the area.

Primary schools in Canary Wharf include: Arnhem Wharf Primary School, Cubitt Town Junior School and Stepney Greencoat Church of England Primary School.

Secondary schools in Canary Wharf include: George Green’s School, Langdon Park Community School and The Blessed John Roche Roman Catholic School.

Further Education establishments include: Canary Wharf College, University of Sunderland in London and UCL School of Management.

Being in Central London, Canary Wharf is very well connected by road, water and train. Easy access to Santander Cycles, the Jubilee Line and DLR as well as boat services via Thames Clipper mean residents of Canary Wharf have multiple public transport options available to them.
