This walk reveals some of the lesser known architectural gems of the Isle of Dogs, mostly outside of the banking area at Canary Wharf, from housing – social, private and charitable -- to glistening offices to ornate buildings with important public functions. It also takes you to some natural features and green spaces that might surprise the first time visitor to this fascinating area that has retained its special charm in the face of the bombing, wholesale regeneration and massive economic change that it underwent in the 20th century.
