Located north of the river Thames, Canning Town is the living and breathing heartbeat of the East End. The area is currently in the midst of a huge regeneration plan which is seeing it emerge as a new, fresh-faced part of the capital with so much more to offer. New restaurants and bars are popping-up with smart waterside eateries at the nearby Royal Victoria Docks. It’s at the dockside that you will also find the Excel Exhibition Centre, London’s award-winning convention and events venue. Canning Town is also just minutes away from the sparkling skyscrapers of Canary Wharf and its abundance of shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment. With its underground and DLR (Docklands Light Railway) stations, getting around from here is easy.
