Canning Town's new lease of life

Situated on the north side of the Thames, the Canning Town district of East London was once part of the bustling and historic Royal Docks. Located between London City Airport and Canary Wharf, the area in more recent times has been the subject of major regeneration projects aimed at bringing it more in line with its thoroughly modern neighbours.
