Description

About your walking tour:

The Canary Wharf guided walk from ‘Let’s Discover London’ is the story of the rise, decline and rise once more of the area known as the Isle of Dogs in London.

It's not just about huge office buildings, it’s a lot lot more. It’s a story full of wonders, of a proud local community (who once declared their own independent country), of bustling docks filled with rum and sugar, of pirates, of executions, of the courage of digging the world‘s first under-river tunnel, of London’s first Chinese community, Chinatown, of early canal networks ... most of all, it is the story of resilience Over human failure.
