Gazing upwards at Canary Wharf

Blogging challenges, London

Last week meant a visit to London, to see the family we haven’t had sight of since last August. This was no tourist trip, but on our last day, the children securely occupied at school or nursery, we did venture forth – more of that another day. Today, I’ll simply share views from the escalator at Canary Wharf Station, because I always find this sight optimistic and full of light.

  4. Heigh ho. I wonder if I’d find it different if I worked there? What I enjoy really is the DLR journey, and all the waterways the area seems sited round. And the names on the way. Mudchute. Heron Quays. That sort of thing. Carefully chosen, I realise, but even so …

    1. Yeah, I like all the water as well. And there’s a great view from the skyscrapers. But the area has no character or soul and the diversity you see in other parts of London is more or less non-existing in Canary Wharf.
