Canary Wharf Underground, London United Kingdom

One of the most modern looking Underground stations in London with a pretty futuristic and clean look.
Canary Wharf station, designed by British architect Norman Foster, is the second busiest on the London Underground outside Central London after Stratford and has over 40 million users every year. The architecture provides many photographic opportunities.

The first of the "behind the scene" shots at night were filed in error; is actually an "above the scene". It shows the distinctive canopy to the escalator exit, but its the one from the other end of the hall, taken from my desk at the time. Zooming above it, you can see the Gherkin and Cheese Grater. The seen has now gone - the cranes have been replaced by another high-rise apartment block.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

Travel information

You can get there by the London Underground (Jubilee Line) for obvious reasons, but you have to leave the Underground to get to this spot, so you will have to pay again to reenter it. If you aren't there by tube, you can enter this part of the station for free by using the eastern entrance.
Thank you very much for your suggested change. We will check it as soon as possible and update this spot.

Wow! This is where my journey to work ends but I've never seen it look this amazing.

Haha, that's awesome and often the best part about photography, if you get the chance to open someones eyes for the beauty of something. Thank you very much for sharing your thoughts with us, that's extremely helpful for others as well.

I tried this shot the other night at about 5:20 and it doesn't work anywhere near as well. Late at night on a weekend seems to be the trick.

Hmmm, to be honest, I don't understand your behind the scenes photos...? The feature is meant for photos from "behind the scenes", which would be in this case the place in front of the moving staircase so that you can see how much space you have for the tripod etc.

Argh! Misunderstood that - the intent was to show the scene from the other side of the canopy - not the same thing at all. And to make things worse, the canopy isn't that one; its the one from the other end of the hall. I'll take these down and perhaps find a more appropriate home. Sorry. How do I remove them? Can't see the little cog. (like being able to see when the shots were taken, BTW)
