The sleek tower blocks of London's Canary Wharf dominate the city's skyline and include one of Britain's tallest buildings: One Canada Square. The Canary Wharf and Docklands area was once the busiest port in the World, although you'll see few clues to its past as you walk around the area. Canada Square is home to many of the UK's leading businesses, but it also has a great shopping centre, open seven days a week. Sleek and modern, Canada Square boasts more than 200 shops, with all the major high-street chains as well as a good selection of designer stores.
Look out for big names like Oasis and Zara plus lingerie brand Myla and luxurious fragrance store Jo Malone. If you can avoid the lunch-hour rush, it's one of London's most chilled-out shopping experiences. Europe's largest urban farm is overlooked by Canary Wharf's skyscrapers. Mudchute Farm and Park is the perfect escape from the city.
