Canary Wharf

1 Canada Square, E14. DLR: Canary Wharf

Britain's tallest building, with its pyramid shaped roof dominates London's newest business district, the home to many blue chip organisations. Unpleasant security staff will inform you that the Canary Wharf Tower is an office block and is NOT open to the public. Cabot Hall, at the Centre of a complex of offices; shops and restaurants hosts many arts and cultural events.

Canary Wharf was originally called the Rum Quay through its trade with the West Indies. The Wharf got its present name because, after the last war, this is where the Fred Olsen Line discharged bananas and tomatoes imported from the Spanish Canary Islands off the coast of Africa.
