What’s Open in Canary Wharf During Lockdown

13 November 2020

There are plenty of things to do today in London’s Canary Wharf, where a range of stores and services – including supermarkets and pharmacies – are open in order to serve the local community, with all the necessary Covid-secure measures in place. There are also beautiful outdoor spaces in which to enjoy some fresh air and, as a thank you to Canary Wharf’s residents, visitors and workers, their 3 hours’ free parking at weekends offer has been extended to every day when you spend £10 at any of our shops, cafes and restaurants.

Where to start? Waitrose & Partners, Tesco Metro and Marks & Spencer Simply Food are all open, as are Currys PC World, Robert Dyas, Ryman and Holland & Barrett. NipNip can carry out essential bike repairs, and iSmash will fix broken devices.

You have over 60 of London’s best take out and food delivery offerings to choose from across Canary Wharf, with every cuisine from Spanish to Japanese, across fast food (Nando’s and Five Guys), fine dining (Ibérica and ROKA) and everything in between. You’ll still be able to satisfy cravings for your favourite coffee, cupcakes, pizza or doughnuts, and you won’t have to miss out on your favourite breakfasts and lunches from Leon, Paul and Pret a Manger.

For any health or dental issues, you can book an appointment at Babylon Healthcare, Pure Sports Medicine, Smilepod, BUPA Health & Dental Centre, Freedom Clinics and Sk:n. All Boots branches remain open, as do opticians Vision Express, David Clulow and Tom Davies. As needed, you can visit City of London Drycleaners, the Post Office and bank branches Halifax, Lloyds Bank, HSBC, NatWest or Santander too.

Whether you’re starting or continuing your Christmas shopping, click & collect is a brilliant option. For clothing and accessories, browse Paul Smith, Zara and Hobbs; for beautiful fragrances, phones and photos, there’s Rituals, EE and Snappy Snaps. Watches of Switzerland, David M Robinson and Monica Vinader are at your service when it comes to watches and jewellery. John Lewis & Partners may be closed but you can order from their website before 4pm and collect it from Waitrose & Partners in Canada Place shopping mall the very next day.

* 3 hours’ free parking is available every day to anyone who spends £10 in any of our shops, cafes and restaurants, until 31 December 2020. Ask for your ticket to be validated at point of purchase and use in the pay-on-foot machines before returning to your car.
