Going to London for the first time in about 5 years. Any recommendations on where to go to view some brilliant architecture and urban development. Obviously will go to the City etc, but is it worth going to Canary Wharf as well or is there nothing to do there?

  • Greenwhich Park
  • Primrose Hill
  • The Shard
  • 20 Fenchurch Street
  • London Monument to Great Fire of London
  • Bokan at Novotel CW
  • Tompkins Attic Bar at Pan Pensinula
  • Tower Bridge elevated walkway
  • Westminster Cathedral
  • Orbit Tower
  • Brockwell Park
  • London Eye
  • St Paul's Cathedral viewing gallery

That's what i can think off at the top of my head, I'm sure others will fill in the gaps.

Regarding CW...

There are always tourists and photographers alike looking at the tall buildings, there's a huge shopping centre full of food and drink options to choose from.

Enjoy your visit

Would recommend Canary Wharf just for the sheer scale of development going on there! Maybe could take the jubilee upto Stratford after that and take a look around there, it would have changed quite a bit from when you last visited!

Also in Stratford you could take a walk around the Olympic park and head up the orbit for great views of London.

St Paul's has the best view for the scale of development in the City since you get a nice north-south axis with 110 Bishopsgate, 22 Bishopsgate and the Scalpel all lined up.

I'd add the Thames walkway on Grosvenor Road down across Vauxhall Bridge for a wide-eye perspective of Vauxhall, Nine Elms and Battersea as well.

Plus great "Star Wars" bridge and botanical garden on top of new Elizabeth Line station. Nice pocket parks too. CW is a good place to spend half a day.

Kings Cross. Time it so you end your exploration in early evening with a drink near the big art college square.

There's an app (i think it still exists) which you can use to control the fountains at Granary Square (the big art college square).
