Canary Wharf and Limehouse

It’s not just about huge office buildings, it’s an amazing story about resilience. Hear about a proud local community (who once declared their own independent country), of bustling docks filled with rum and sugar, of pirates, of executions, of the courage of digging the world‘s first under-river tunnel, of London’s first Chinese community, Chinatown, of early canal networks … most of all, it is the story of resilience.

Using google Earth images, photos and a real live tour guide, this is a virtual tour of the remarkable story of the rise, decline and rise once more of the area known as the Isle of Dogs.
