Canary Wharf station is a swift nine-minute journey from Stratford or Waterloo on the Jubilee line. If the weather’s good, hop on the Clipper or take the DLR for a scenic route through London’s East.
Although some of you might have never considered shopping in Canary Wharf, I personally prefer it to Oxford Street. Luxurious brands such as Tiffany & Co., Michael Kors, Aspinal of London, Montblanc and Coach (coming soon to Cabot Place) sit side by side with high-street favourites such as Reiss, Whistles, Zara, Mango or Topshop. Beat the ques and enjoy a shopping session away from the hustle and bustle of Oxford Street. Plus, you get three hours free parking when you spend £10 at any of their shops, restaurants or cafes at weekends and Bank holidays.
Canary Wharf has also gathered the very best restaurants for you to enjoy. There’s ROKA, Plateau at the top of Canada Place offering fine dining and breathtaking views of the city or the more informal Tom’s Kitchen. You’ll be spoiled for choice, I promise!
Novotel London Canary Wharf is a new stylish 39 storey hotel, located in the city’s iconic business district and within easy access of London’s main tourist attractions. With 313 contemporary guest rooms including 26 designer style Suites, a gym, a pool and 9 fully equipped meeting rooms, Novotel is perfect for both business and leisure stays.
Towering over Canary Wharf, BOKAN is a stunning restaurant-bar arranged over three floors, and takes its design cues from the Dockland’s rusty, industrial past. Whether you want to relax and enjoy a cocktail al fresco on their rooftop terrace or have a three-course meal whilst admiring the spectacular views of the city, BOKAN is without a doubt the most stylish spot to eat and drink in Canary Wharf right now.
Now you know where I’ll be spending my Summer!
