Living in Canary Wharf

A Chestertons area guide to Canary Wharf

Welcome to Canary Wharf

Described by some as London’s very own mini Manhattan, Canary Wharf is much more than sky high office blocks. Providing housing for those who work in the area, as well as those who commute into the city, Canary Wharf is well placed to offer its residents access to the surrounding areas.
Properties in Canary Wharf are predominantly modern buildings with stylish minimalist interiors, although those looking for older property have the pick of surrounding Limehouse or, just south of the river, Blackheath and Greenwich.

•Stunning architecture
•Modern, purpose built properties
•Access to central and south  London
•Active social scene
•Distinctive area

  • Entertainment & nightlife

    As the majority of residents are young professionals, the area is well catered for by numerous bars, pubs and restaurants. Anyone after a big night out can easily travel to Shoreditch or Dalston.

    Best place for after work drinks

    Rum and sugar is a bar situated in what used to be a rum warehouse in West India Quay and they specialise in rum cocktails. In addition to serving cocktails, each month they pick a ‘Rum of the month’ so you can brush up on you drinking knowledge as well as your technique.

  • Parks & recreation

    Nearby Mudchute Park and Farm offers a little escape into nature.  The 32 acres of green space incorporates one of the largest city farms in Europe, as well as woodland, wetland and meadows.

  • Restaurants & shopping

    Canary Wharf has its own underground shopping mall housing a mix of high street shops and up-market designer stores.  In terms of cuisine, Canary Wharf varies from high street chain restaurants to more unique propositions.

    Best place for a luxury meal 

    Boisdale of Canary Wharf focuses on the finer things in life and their motto is ‘the very finest from ages past’. Steak, oysters, whisky, cigars and live jazz are on the menu proving that they take their motto rather seriously. 

  • Schools

    Primary schools stand out as being particularly good, of note are the Riverhouse Montessori School, Arnhem Wharf Primary School and Canary Wharf College.
  • Transport & travel

    Canary Wharf is well served by both the Jubilee line and the Docklands Light railway (DLR) allowing good access to East, West and South London.

    The nearby mainline stations of Deptford and Maze Hill have services running to Cannon Street and southwards into Kent.
