A trip to canary Wharf in london. 19/7/2015

Gail my dad and myself drove down to Dollis Hill and got the Tube into Canary Wharf to have a look around on a very sunny Sunday morning. I decided to take my camera and just walk around the old Wharf,s taking photos of the big city financial Buildings, if you go on a Sunday the place is deserted. We had a bit of Dinner then made our way back using the Docklands light Railway, but not before looking at West India Docks. After the closure of the upstream enclosed docks, the area was regenerated as part of the Docklands scheme, and is now home to the developments of Canary Wharf. The early phase one buildings of Canary Wharf were built out over the water, reducing the width of the north dock and middle dock, and the Jubilee linestation was later constructed within the middle dock.
However, the docks remain open to ships and are now effectively protected from future major change by national and London Government policy. South Dock regularly plays host to medium-sized military vessels visiting London as it is the furthest point upstream that they can be turned around.
