Living in Canary Wharf area information and guide

Canary Wharf area overview

Canary Wharf was often accused of being soulless and shiny, but shopping malls and a John Lewis branch have lent a homely touch and the area is home to many residents as well as the 100,000 office workers that arrive on a daily basis. The majority of homes are found in swanky glass sky scrapers such as Pan Peninsula in South Quay, although many converted warehouses offer a more relaxed living style in West India Quay on the north side of the business district.
