Exploring The London Art Scene This Spring

What would life be without art? We don’t intend to find out. Canary Wharf, known for its towering skyscrapers and bustling financial district, hides a treasure trove of artistic wonders waiting to be discovered. More than 100 artworks decorate the streets – these include sculptures and architectural features created by renowned artists. This collection showcases the best of modern artistry, making the district a hub of creativity and talent.

Canary Wharf’s Artistic Culture

Culture has the power to transform a neighbourhood. It turns mere streets into immersive galleries, inviting exploration and conversation. Canary Wharf understands this, curating a rich tapestry of events catering to all ages and tastes. From educational workshops and exhibitions to comedy shows and live performances, there’s something for everyone. These cultural offerings not only entertain but also foster a sense of community, weaving together the diverse fabric of Canary Wharf.

Where to go and what to see

The Canary Wharf art trail is a pleasant way to spend a few hours browsing and completely free. It is open all year round, with no tickets required. The trail starts at West Ferry Circus, and we recommend grabbing a copy of the art trail map to get you started. Some of the notable art pieces along the way include Alexander Beleschenko’s Art Glass Wall, Michal Rovner’s Transitions, and ScribbleForm by Julian Wild.

Spring: The Perfect Canvas for Art Exploration

As the flowers bloom and the sun graces London with its warmth, Spring beckons us outdoors to explore. And what better way to spend a leisurely day than wandering through Canary Wharf’s open-air gallery? Whether you’re enjoying a picnic with the family, or unwinding after a day of shopping with friends, Canary Wharf’s art trail is the place to be. (The art shines even brighter in the Spring-time sunshine!)

Engaging the Next Generation: Kids Art Trails

For families seeking enriching experiences, Canary Wharf offers an array of activities to captivate young minds. The dedicated art trail for kids leads the way through 12 specially selected pieces, igniting curiosity and sparking creativity. These immersive journeys not only entertain but also educate, offering valuable insights into the world of art and culture. Taking children on these adventures not only provides quality family time but also lays the foundation for a lifelong appreciation of the arts.
