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.

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, Roman Dead, runs to the 28th October 2018. 

Canary Wharf

There's usually always something going on at Canary Wharf.  Art exhibitions, sporting events, fashion shows...all on our doorstep. There are many activities this year: check out Canary Wharf's events programme.  Watch out for screenings and performances - such as Swan Lake live from the London Opera House on Tuesday 12th June, Canada Square Park.  The Crossrail roof garden is always a pleasant spot to visit, and there are activities throughout the year. 

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.
