"Regarded as the most expensive takeaway ever was from a restaurant called Ubon in Canary Wharf; it was chauffeur driven to Luton and flown to Baku on a private jet for a bargain cost of £40,000!"

The glass and steel of Canary Wharf's towering architecture is other-worldly...

What locals say about Isle Of Dogs

  1. We're a minute from the river, and love to walk along it. If we walk a little further we can get to Greenwich via one of London's secret gems - the Greenwich got tunnel. Mudchute is great - a little bit of London, a little bit of suburbia.

About Isle Of Dogs

The Isle of Dogs is a former island in the East End of London that is bounded on three sides (east, south and west) by one of the largest meanders in the River Thames. The urbanisation of the Isle of Dogs took place in the 19th century following the construction of the West India Docks, which opened in 1802. The south of the isle, opposite Greenwich, was once known as North Greenwich, now applied to the area around the Millennium Dome on the Greenwich Peninsula. The Isle of Dogs is now best known as the location of the prestigious Canary Wharf office complex.
