Canary Wharf is a hub of business in East London where you will see tower blocks emblazoned with big bank brand names. It is a sleek built up area made up of a mixture residential and office blocks and well serviced with tube, boat and bus services.
Canary Wharf was until recently an old derelict docklands area which underwent a huge regeneration in the eighties and is now well served with a bounty of top restaurants and bars. Whilst buzzing and alive during the week, it can often feel like a ghost town at the weekend.
About 90,000 people work there and it is the other financial centre of London (the first being the City). However, right in the centre of the skyscrapers is Europe's largest urban farm with sheep, ducks and llamas!
