Wondering if living in Canary Wharf is right for you? Canary Wharf is a striking landmark on the London skyline and one of the world’s leading financial centres. But alongside its nine-to-five business buzz, it’s also a great place to call home. Here’s why.

1. King’s Cross to Limehouse Basin

If the idea of taking to London’s roads without being safely enclosed in a vehicle fills you with anxiety, this is one of the best East London cycle routes for you.

It’s a 6-mile cycle along the Regent’s Canal, starting at King’s Cross and ending at the Limehouse Basin, meaning minimal road-cycling time.

From King’s Cross’ trendy Granary Square, head east along the canal.

As you head down this stretch of canal towards Hackney, you’ll find a hidden, peaceful retreat from the busy city roads, and some of the beautiful period houses that East London is famed for.
