‘Draped Seated Woman’ – Henry Moore 1957-1958


Canary Wharf is home to London’s largest collection of outdoor public art. The Collection, of more than 100 pieces, is a mix of stand-alone sculptures and integrated architectural works. Each piece created by a highly respected artist and together the Collection is like a roll-call of modern artistic talent.

In addition to being a leading global financial district in the United Kingdom, Canary Wharf is famous for a cluster of the tallest modern commercial complexes and residential high-rise buildings. Building from scratch in early 1990s, the district is home to the first tallest iconic skyscraper, One Canada Square, in the United Kingdom. In twenty years, the new skyscraper cluster has dramatically transformed the skyline of London with modern architecture. As of 2023, Canary Wharf has five out of the top ten tallest buildings in the United Kingdom. The 75-storey Landmark Pinnacle is the tallest residential tower in the United Kingdom and the whole of western Europe.

Join us for a walk around Canary Wharf to see some of these sculptures, enjoy the gardens and river views, and explore this extraordinary environment after which, for those who want to stay, we can lunch in one of the many, informal restaurants.

Accompanied by Mary Aird.
