Canary Wharf is a financial business district in the center of London with some of the tallest buildings in Europe. Canary Wharf was the main harbor area of London in the past and that's also where the name is coming from, based on the sea trade with the canary islands.

This area in general offers a lot as a photographers playground. Besides the stunning skyscrapers of the district, the Canary Wharf Underground Station nearby is a great place for photographers. It has two beautiful and pretty futuristic looking entrances. The main entrance is a little bit bigger and has longer and more escalators, but the other one looks a little bit better in terms of a photographic composition. Professional photography is prohibited at this place though, because it's nevertheless a private space, so make sure to get a permission first if you are planning job-related photos.

Travel tips for Canary Wharf

By London Underground seems to be the easiest way, but if you just want to photograph the beautiful entrances of this station you unfortunately have to leave the payed area and enter it again when you want to travel back.
