Located on the edge of the river Thames, Westferry is ideally located to reach Central London. Canary Wharf is just a short walk away, ideal for shopping or a coffee in one of its cafés overlooking the river. Billingsgate Market and the O2 Arena are just a short trip across the river with its restaurants, entertainment, and world class concert venues.
Travel a little further and you have the beautiful village of Greenwich, home of the National Maritime Museum and the Royal Observatory. You can even use your Oyster card and start your journey home with a trip on the Emirates Cable Car which goes back across the Thames taking in some fantastic river views.
