Isle of Dogs, E14
Use the Docklands Light Railway
||Canary Wharf is seen by many as the heart of the Docklands redevelopment. It is a small strip of land and docks in the middle of the Isle of Dogs, the centrepiece being the 800ft tower designed and built by Cesar Pelli in 1991.|
Officially called 1 Canada Square, but often better known as the Canary Wharf tower, this is currently the tallest building in the UK. Unfortunately, due to fears of terrorist attacks, it is not open to the public so you can't climb to the top for the views.
It was to Canary Wharf that many of the newspapers of Fleet Street moved in the 1980s. Among others, the Daily Telegraph, Daily Mirror and Independent are currently housed in 1 Canada Square.
