  1. Take to the water with GoBoat

Make the most of the (hopefully!) better weather and bank holidays and spend more time on the water. Perfect for groups of up to eight, GoBoat is an ideal activity for all ages. Cruise through Canary Wharf’s beautiful waterways in a self-driving boat, sailing past luscious green gardens and stunning architecture.

  1. Enjoy the outdoors

Make the most of the great outdoors by heading to one of Canary Wharf’s lush, verdant parks, fountain-filled squares, and blooming gardens. These little pockets of tranquillity provide the perfect spaces to gather your thoughts, breathe a little more deeply and make room for mental wellbeing in nature. Soak up the sun by wandering up to 5km of tranquil waterside boardwalk down at Harbour Quay. It’s also a great place to sit by the calm water with a coffee and watch the world go by. Jubilee Park is full of trees and cascading water features, providing a chill-out zone to wind-down in. Or head to one of London’s largest roof gardens, Crossrail Place Roof Garden, which is a haven of tropical plants, trees, and ferns.
