Walking along the Thames – Canary Wharf | Rêver aux bords de la Tamise – Canary Wharf

Se promener à Canary Wharf, bien plus surprenante qu’on ne le croit, puis longer les bords de la Tamise, parfois aux bords de la rivière, parfois par les rues parallèles jusqu’à Tower Bridge. Une ballade reposante, loin de la folie de la ville, à découvrir ces anciens entrepôts reconvertis en bureaux ou habitations et que l’on ne croyait pas si nombreux. Comme à Hammersmith, vous croiserez sur votre chemin de nombreux pubs avec vue… Et si la fatigue se fait sentir, emprunter un Boris’ bike, le calme des rues est idéal pour en profiter.Canary Wharf is much more suprising than you expect. Have a look around –  plenty of fountains and modern sculptures there –  then walk along the Thames towards Tower Bridge. Ever so soothing, far from the crazy rythm of Oxford street. This will sometimes follow the river, sometimes take you to parallel streets and you will be amazed by the buildings  that used to store spices and silk and have now been renovated into offices and flats. You knew there were there but never expected so many. As in Hammersmith, there will be plenty of pubs with a view on your way. And if tiredness strikes, just jump on a Boris bike – the streets are so quiet around here and it is definitely the best place to enjoy cycling.
