Pedestrian and Cycle Routes

Canary Wharf is a few minutes’ walk from the Thames Path, a public right of way that runs the whole length of the river. Greenwich/Cutty Sark, through the foot tunnel, is 2.2 miles away or 45 minutes on foot.

There is a footbridge from the West Wintergarden to South Quay, and Upper Bank Street Bridge provides a route to Poplar DLR Station in the north.

There are several cycle routes that provide access to Canary Wharf for cyclists. The London Cycle Network also follows a signed route along the river to Canary Riverside and Riverside South. Liverpool Street Station, in the heart of the City of London, is 3.3 miles or 19 minutes away by bike.

Canary Wharf provides extensive cycle parking, with more than 1,300 free cycle parking spaces located across the Canary Wharf Estate. There are an additional 405 secure cycle parking spaces for public use for which a charge is applied and a further 3,715 private cycle parking spaces within individual building car parks.

Access to our Secure Bicycle Compound in Canada Square Car Park, £12 per calendar month. There are a limited number of available spaces and electric bikes or scooters storage is not permitted. For more information please call 020 7418 2752 or email

Transport for London’s Cycle Hire Users’ Code of Conduct suggest some of the following tips for staying safe on your bike:

  • Be careful around lorries, which have numerous blind spots, and never pass them on the left just before, or at, traffic lights
  • Don’t get too close to parked cars
  • Watch out for other vehicles and pedestrians and give clear hand signals to show your intentions
  • Make yourself seen at night by wearing reflective or fluorescent clothing

It costs as little as £2 a day to use Santander Cycles, and the scheme accepts all major credit and debit cards. It does not accept cash or Oyster.
