Canary Wharf is an iconic part of London's skyline and, while it might be better known as the glass and steel headquarters of London's global financial centre, in the past decade it's also become one of the Capital’s most coveted neighbourhoods. After the glitch that was the property crash of the early 1990s, the transition from derelict ex industrial docks to a thriving business and residential quarter is complete.

Canary Wharf and its surroundings are now home not only to billion pound businesses, but also a rapidly growing number of professional residents. With more development to come, and the arrival of Crossrail in 2018, this area is set to become even more diverse.
