A city adventure
Not everyone is a nature person, and even those who are, need a change of scenery every once in a while. Try something new this weekend, go for an urban safari walk!

Clocks outside the Canary Wharf Tube Station.

Canary Wharf - a second heart to London's commerce and home to some of the tallest skyscrapers that the city has to offer, including UK's second tallest building, One Canada Square. The whole area spreading across 14m sq feet, is owned by the Canary Wharf Group. A lot many companies have their European or World Headquarters here, with buildings that are a marvel to watch.

Connected through trains, buses and tubes, the area is easily accessible by anywhere in London.

A train over Thames.

It offers some excellent views of the London skyline and is equally panoramic in both day and night. Though, the proximity to the river means it gets a little chilly by sun-fall.

A locale to Danny Boyle's 28 Days Later and 28 Weeks Later, it has many breathtaking spots here for you to capture that perfect moment as you watch the urban beasts whiz past over the Thames or those giant necked creatures graze on the moon itself.

Urban explorers.

We would recommend it to all urban adventurers who would love to cherish the beauty of a city at its peak. Be here to admire the architecture, breathe in a cool river breeze and enjoy it all over a cup of hot coffee.
