All shops are here. Tube station on Jubilee Line. Park on station roof, with water streams & green grass, is lovely for lunch picnics and photos. In the summer there are arts performances on weekends.

Westferry DLR or a bus ride takes you to canary wharf in 10 mins. Canary wharf jubilee line helps reach many prime spots i in London easily.

Jubilee Line, 24hrs on Friday and Saturday. Its possible to walk but owing to construction work, I'd recommend taking the DLR to Poplar or rent a Santander Cylce hire!
