Local History

Once one of the busiest shipping ports in the world, Canary Wharf was the beating heart of London in the early 1800’s. The origin of its name came from the Canary Islands, one of the Docklands’ most prominent trading partners. Trading was the way of life back then, however a very different type of trading now takes place at this iconic destination.

During World War II, Canary Wharf was heavily targeted. Many storage sites and warehouses bore the brunt of the Blitz, damaging them beyond repair and leaving the trading industry in disrepair.

By the 1980’s, the docks were closed and the area was seeking regeneration. This once so important, but yet now so derelict location was ready for a drastic change. Large businesses began moving their businesses into the area and from then onwards, Canary Wharf became well-known for its business district which is particularly popular with banks and law firms.
