How Your Treasure Hunt Will Work
Why Treasure Hunts Work
Canary Wharf is a large business development in London, located on the Isle of Dogs in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, centred on the old West India Docks in the London Docklands. Why not treat your staff to a corporate event or team building right on their doorstep. Ideal is you are a business on a limited budget.
Canary Wharf is built on the site of the old West India Docks on the Isle of Dogs. From 1802 to 1980, the area was one of the busiest docks in the world, with at one point 50,000 employed. Canary Wharf itself takes its name from the sea trade with the Canary Islands, whose name comes from the dogs (Latin canis) which the Spaniards found there, producing the linguistic coincidence of trade between the Dog Islands and the Isle of Dogs.
During WWII, the docks area was bombed heavily and nearly all the original warehouses were destroyed or badly damaged. After a brief recovery in the 1950s, the port industry began to decline. Containerisation and a lack of flexibility made the central London docks less viable than out-of-town sites like Felixstowe and Harwich, and by 1980 the docks were closed. Thousands were out of work and a huge area of the Docklands lay in ruins — a testament to the changing world economy.The project to revitalise the eight square miles of derelict London docks began in 1981 with the establishment of the London Docklands Development Corporation by the government of Margaret Thatcher. Initially redevelopment was focused on small-scale, light industrial schemes and Canary Wharf's largest occupier was Limehouse Studios, a TV production company.
After a stop-start development, the redevelopment plans were realised and today canary wharf is a key area in the city of London. Our Canary wharf Treasure Hunt takes you around this fascinating and spectacular area of London.
There is little need to mention other sites in London such as London Tower, London Bridge, St. Paul's Cathedral, Houses of Parliament etc, suffice it to say that some of these could possibly be seen on one of our other London Treasure Hunts - or even on this one if you have the time and stamina!
