Why is Canary Wharf famous?
Canary Wharf is the financial heart of London, located in the Docklands and Isle of Dogs area of the city and just a 10-minute drive away from the ExCeL Centre. It’s not only home to businesses and skyscrapers like One Canada Square – the third tallest building in the UK! – but also a wide variety of shops, bars and restaurants, like the Canary Wharf Shopping Centre.
Why is Canary Wharf called Canary Wharf?
Canary Wharf sits on the Isle of Dogs, which was once one of the busiest docks in the world.

When the port industry began to decline, the area was redeveloped, with businesses moving into Canary Wharf from 1991.
