Our top picks close to this hotel

For families

A pirate themed treasure hunt around West India Quay and Canary Wharf is so much fun and an ideal way to explore this often overlooked and unusual area.  The route is also very wheelchair-friendly too. There are lots of interesting statues and art installations on the two mile route.

For romance

Plateau, with its floor to ceiling windows and views of the sparkling London skyline could not fail to impress on a date. Classy and ultra modern, a table at this place may set you back a bit, but for a special occasion it is well worth it.

For culture

Spitalfields Market is a highlight in this area and a must do for any culture vulture wanting to gain a well rounded perspective on this fascinating area of London.

For shopping

Tatty Devine is a rather kitsch and fabulous shop which sells jewels and trinkets you never knew you needed.  Plastic fantastic is the order of the day here, with oddities creatively being made from guitar plectrums and dominoes, you know the sort of thing…

For eating out

For cheap eats in the Docklands, try The Square Pie Company where you are served a huge choice of fillings, topped with flaky pastry and lashing of gravy if you like.  Great grub for under a fiver.

For nightlife

The Prospect of Whitby is one of the city’s oldest riverside pubs dating back from 1520.  Flag floors, old oak barrels and an unusual pewter bar all make this pub a real bobby dazzler.  It also has a fine selection of ales, a lovely beer garden and, of course, river views to die for.
