Canning Town is not currently a top destination for shopping.

The iconic Greenwich market is not far away either if you’re looking for a more unique shopping experience.

Green spaces

There are a surprising number of green spaces in Canning Town, making it the perfect place to relax with friends or family. Canning Town Recreation Ground on Prince Regent Lane has a tennis court, a children’s play area as well as a climbing wall. Thames Barrier Park also offers a tranquil riverside promenade as well as meadows with over a hundred different types of flowers.
