The Canary Wharf Virtual Tour: the isle of wonders

It’s not just about huge office buildings, it’s an amazing story about resilience against failure.

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 lots of true stories, 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.
