Canary Wharf is a key financial district and the home of many international businesses, including Barclays, Credit Suisse, HSBC, Morgan Stanley and J. P. Morgan. The area was once one of the busiest docks in the world. Built in 1936 for Fruit Lines Ltd, who imported fruit from the Mediterranean and Canaries, the company requested that their berth be changed from No 32 West Wood Quay and renamed Canary Wharf. Over the last 50 years Canary Wharf has been completely transformed and the arrival of the Elizabeth Line (formerly Crossrail) will significantly reduce travel times to the rest of London and beyond.
Together with the commercial skyscrapers, Canary Wharf is also bristling with a wealth of new luxury residential developments, including Lincoln Plaza, Pan Peninsula and Providence Tower. One Canada Square originally held the record for being the tallest UK building, at 770 feet, until The Shard was completed, which stands at a jaw-dropping 1,016 feet. Since it is primarily a commercial hub, the weekday population look much more business-like than the weekend visitors, who are drawn to the hundreds of cafes, restaurants and the three huge retail centres.
