1 West India Quay is one of the most sought after residential developments in E14. Comprising 33 floors and adjacent to West India Docks, it is only a hop, skip and jump away from Canary Wharf.
Completed in 2004, the building is particularly elegant and has been designed for those who require the finest private residential accommodation, and a particularly convenient location.
The first 12 floors house the Marriott Hotel, and from the 13th floor upwards are one, two, and three bedroom well-appointed apartments. There are also six luxury penthouses on the 31st floor.

Lincoln Plaza is Galliard Homes’ most recently completed residential development in the Canary Wharf area, and (imposingly) stands to the south of the business district close to South Quay DLR and Millwall Dock.
It’s a sprawling development, but the principal private residential components are Duckman and Talisman Towers, which comprise 366 private luxury residential apartments, and respectively stand at 22 and 31 floors. A 12-storey international brand name 100-suite hotel is yet to open, but integrates with the two towers. At launch, which has confused many, Talisman Tower was named Franklin Tower, and Duckman was named Greenwich.

It’s no secret that I love East London. And my adoration doesn’t just involve writing about the breath-taking views. A little bit of country is good for the soul … and that’s what (surprisingly) you’ll be in the middle of if you visit Mudchute Park & Farm on the Isle of Dogs.
If you’re looking for something to do on a Sunday afternoon, like me last Sunday, get your wellies on head down to Mudchute - it is honestly a fantastic place to visit.

Hi there, Frank here… I’m back!
I’ve been off-grid for a couple of weeks because I got myself into a little bit of trouble.
I’ll tell you what happened in a bit.
Because I was naughty you might have noticed that my owners replaced me on the blog with some graffiti of another dog, which isn’t particularly nice for me, but hey-ho. That graffiti is actually quite famous and its on the side of a building near Chrisp Street Market in Poplar. It was painted by artists Irony & Boe who have also painted other animals across London.
