A stroll through Canary Wharf
From curious white mini-dogs to tower blocks

The Greenwich foot tunnel comes out near Island Gardens DLR station at the northern end.
There's a little shop close by where this lady was hanging out with her three identical little dogs.
The space-age underbelly of Heron Quays station, a few stops up from Island Gardens.
Canary Wharf in all its Manhattan-esque glory.
You have to be careful taking photos around here as there's some right arsey fake cops - sorry, private security guards - jobsworthing around.
Much of Canary Wharf stands on private ground, so you can expect an earful of grief if you get accosted by one of these idiots.
Stand in the road, however, and they can't do a thing - check out our Photographers Rights section for more info.
The spectacular concourse of Canary Wharf tube station. Designed by the renowned architect Sir Norman Foster, the station was built in a former dock, using a simple "cut and cover" method to create a vast underground cathedral measuring 24 metres (78 ft) deep and 265 metres (869 ft) long.
Coming up the escalator.
Clock, with One Canada Square behind. This is the 14th-tallest building in Europe, and currently the tallest building in the UK. It will lose this crown in 2012 when the nearby Colombus Tower is completed.
