Things to do

Canary Riverside is in a perfect location for residents to explore all that London has to offer.  Here are some of our suggestions.

Canary Wharf

Summer is always full of fun activities at Canary Wharf. Check out Canary Wharf's events programme.  Watch out for the Summer Screens, screening sports events (Wimbledon, cricket, golf) and movies. 15th July sees al-fresco opera including a performance on Westferry Circus. The Crossrail roof garden is always a pleasant spot to visit.

The Docklands Museum of London

Located just off Hertsmere road, five minutes away from Canary Riverside, the museum is free and has an extensive permanent exhibition detailing the history of the Docklands. The latest exhibition, Slavery, culture and collecting runs to the 15th September 2019, and there is also the 20-foot long Lost Panorama of London on display until 1st September.  

The Sky Garden at the Walky Talky

Great views over London and of Canary Riverside!  What's more, it's free (though advance booking is required).  Take the DLR to Bank, and it's a 3-minute walk to 20 Leadenhall Street, aka the Walky Talky.


Home to the Meridian Line, Cutty Sark, Royal Observatory and lots more.  You can walk or cycle from Canary Riverside along the river bank, taking the foot tunnel under the Thames, or hop on the DLR.
