The Peninsula, Regeneration Personified

For now, the location is most familiarly marked by The O2 Arena. But, this former industrial expanse is the setting for an ambitious development project which will sweep across 150 acres. It is set to transform the district into a vibrant, mixed-use contemporary village.

With a nearby airport and exhibition centre, a Jubilee Line station and the world’s most popular concert venue already in the area, Greenwich Peninsula’s regeneration hopes to rival Shoreditch and Bermondsey with its variety of cafés, bars, artists’ studios, performance venues and green space.

Canary Wharf, Bestowing Business and Pleasure

One of the major hubs of British finance, Canary Wharf is host to the headquarters of numerous major banks and professional services firms. It is also home to many of Europe’s tallest buildings including the second-tallest in Great Britain, One Canada Square.

Canary Wharf itself takes its name from No. 32 berth of the West Wood Quay in the Import Dock. This was built in 1936 for Fruit Lines Ltd; a subsidiary of Fred. Olsen Cruise Lines for the Mediterranean and Canary Islands fruit trade. At their request, the quay and warehouse were given the name Canary Wharf.

Easily accessed by direct river ferry or train from Greenwich, Canary Wharf offers music, film, theatre, dance, art, fashion and more throughout the year plus over 300 shops, bars and restaurants.
