West India Quay has undergone rapid development since the 1990s and really is a fascinating place to explore, with its mixture of historical buildings and ultra-modern architecture.
The Museum of London Docklands tells the story of the River Thames and the docklands, uncovering the city’s long history as a port. It has a number of permanent exhibitions, and the building itself is a testament to London’s commercial past. It’s housed in one of only two remaining warehouses erected on the north quay by the West India Dock Company.
Mudchute is one of the largest city farms in London, and it’s just a few stops away in the Isle of Dogs. It has 32 acres of countryside with farm animals that range from horses, sheep, goats, aviary birds, llamas and alpacas! Kids will love visiting and you can enjoy an ‘animal encounter’ if you book in advance.
The area has some great shopping – from Absolute Vintage (with over 1,000 pairs of vintage shoes) to Billingsgate Market where, apart from the largest selection of fish in the UK, you can also buy vegetables, oils and specialist catering supplies.
You could take a water bus from Canary Wharf Pier along the River Thames and visit Canada Square Park, a delightful two acre garden above the Canada Place retail area. The park is home to one of Canary Wharf’s best loved pieces of public art, an enormous asymmetric glass fibre sculpture that appears to be floating in the air – ‘The Big Blue’ by Ron Arad.
