Canning Town is a part of East London that has seen a renaissance with the regeneration of this riverside location in full flow. As well as being home to West Ham Football Club, Canning Town boasts excellent rail and road links to Central London and easy access to Westfield Stratford, one of London's most impressive places to shop, eat and watch a movie. The leading exhibition centre Excel is nearby and with London City Airport just a DLR ride away, it's so convenient for business or pleasure flights to Europe and beyond. Crossrail's arrival is set to transform this characterful part of London further.
Did you know?
Originally, the only way to reach Canning Town was by boat or by paying to use a toll bridge. This all changed in the 19th Century when the Barking Road was built.
