Business

Canary Wharf is a gleaming hub of international trade and commerce.

Historically, Canary Wharf was part of the West India Docks, the world’s largest port. Today this district is a blend of heritage and modernity, further enhanced by the huge investment and excitement generated by the Olympic Games, held a stone’s throw away in Stratford.

This area may be best known as a business district and with a workforce of over 90,000, the headquarters of numerous financial institutions, and the iconic One Canada Square, it is easy to see why.

In recent years many more homes, restaurants, shops and bars have sprung up here as city professionals and families alike, look to reduce their commute time whilst maintaining a high-end residence in an evolving modern community.
