Canary Wharf and surrounding London Docklands Guide to the area Presented By Eric Nguyen Student No#: 000315313-4 Student ID: ne411 firstname.lastname@example.org Introduction Canary Wharf is the worlds most ambitious urban regeneration development area and the biggest single civil engineering project. There is nowhere like it in London. Steeped in history and full of relics of another age, it's also a new world full of innovative architecture and cutting edge technology. About Canary Wharf There are so many things to do at Canary Wharf. Here is a list of things to keep in mind: 86 acres of office space and retail shops 17.1 acres of landscaped open spaces Places to eat, walk, sit, shop and relax. Modern working environments Great public transport Accessible to disabled people Public Artwork Displays Surrounding area: Isle Of Dogs Once rumored to be the site of King Henry VIII's hunting kennels, the Isle of Dogs is now part of a major financial and business district, with stunning hi-tech quality buildings with shimmering expanses of water which has given it the nickname 'Venice on Thames' . Surrounding area: Limehouse Limehouse was once the heart of Chinatown, being well known for bars and cheap lodging houses. Although Chinatown has since then moved, the area has now evolved into a residential area keeping all of the positives from the 1890’s. • Westferry has great vintage views and scenery on Narrow Street where many of the pubs and wine cellars remain open for business. A few of the many places to visit… Traffic Light Tree by Pierre Vivant, located in the middle of Herons Quay roundabout. A striking Herring Gull, a sculpture by Jane Ackroyd can be found at Ropemaker's Fields, Narrow Street. Ledger Building, West India Quay (built in 1803) is now a JD Weatherspoon bar. The Belgua Cafe is one of the smartest and most welcoming bars located at West India Quay.
