Spotlight on Canada Water

Posted by Folio London on 01 February 2018

Rich in history and oozing with culture, this month we point the spotlight on Canada Water, the sought-after location for young professionals. Used as a dock for Canadian cargo ships, this part of South East London was a hive of activity until 1969, when the dock was closed and sold to Southwark Borough Council.

Now, Canada Water is undergoing vast regeneration efforts making it a location looking to become the new ‘’it zone’. It’s close proximity to the City and in particular Canary Wharf, is what makes it an ideal location for young professionals. London renters are flocking to Canada Water looking for trendy homes on the waterfront.

If you want to experience some of the best that Canada Water has to offer why not take a visit. We have plenty of suggestions of the best places to eat and drink. 

  • Fancy an after-work drink, or three? Just one stop away on the tube is the buzzing Canary Wharf home to some great night life. With plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from it’s the ideal night out.
  • Looking for a local Café to cure a sore head? The award winning Canada Water Café is ideal for brunch, lunch and dinner. Serving delicious handmade pizza, fresh pasta, pastries, cakes, Italian inspired breakfast, coffee and even cocktails and wine. It’s a must to visit in the area.  
  • Want to make sure you get involved in the culture? Set to change the face of the capitals cultural scene, the newly opened Printworks in Canada Water is a 6,000 capacity licenced venue for music and the arts. 

Can you visualize immersing yourself in all Canada Water has to offer? Our new development is coming soon this summer so make sure you keep an eye out on our website to find out more!
