Prime Location Canary Wharf Area Guide

Canary Wharf is one of London’s major business districts, and is located in the borough of Tower Hamlets on the Isle of Dogs in East London. It is home to some of the UK’s tallest buildings, including One Canada Square, which dominates the London skyline.

Developed in the late 1980s after the close of the West India Docks (which were once part of one of the busiest ports in the world), Canary Wharf is named after a berth built in 1936 for a shipping company that imported fruit from the Canary Islands.


Living and working in Canary Wharf are some of the highest paid individuals in London. The European headquarters for HSBC, Citibank and Barclays are to be found there, and due to this, the proportion of low paid jobs in Canary Wharf is one of the lowest in the capital. Its working population reached over 1 million people in 2012.

The majority of housing in Canary Wharf is luxury, high-rise apartment buildings, inhabited by the area’s working professionals.


There is only one secondary school in Canary Wharf, George Green’s, which is a mixed-sex state school that was rated satisfactory in a 2009 Ofsted inspection. Further north into Tower Hamlets are the Sir John Cass Foundation and Redcoat Church of England Secondary School which was rated outstanding, and Langdon Park Community School which was rated ‘good’.

The nearest independent schools to the area are the Marathon Science School for boys (located in Surrey Quays) and Blackheath High School for girls.


The Canary Wharf underground station is on the Jubilee line, which runs laterally through the north of the district, and is well connected to central London, The City and Stratford. The area is also serviced by the DLR, and there are several stations located throughout the Isle of Dogs (South Quay, Crossharbour and Island Gardens).

The DLR extends throughout the East and Southeast of London and reliably serves more than 80 million of the area’s residents, commuters and visitors every year.

Amenities and shopping

There are more than 240 shops, bars and restaurants in Canary Wharf, all indulging the tastes of the area’s professional clientele. Shopping is high-end, and brands with stores in Canary Wharf’s shopping mall range from Bang & Olufsen to Thomas Pink.

For fine dining, Roka Canary Wharf serves contemporary Japanese cuisine overlooking Canada Square, while the Boisdale is an animated restaurant that serves Scottish fare accompanied by live music. The venue specialises in whisky and Havana cigars, and lists a caviar and oyster bar amongst its features. For evening entertainment, the East Wintergarden, based on the Wintergardens in New York, is a modern, stylish venue that holds conferences, concerts, corporate and comedy events amongst many others. Canary Wharf is fast-paced and incredibly business oriented, perfectly appointed to cater for the career driven individuals who work, live and play there.
