A guide to Canada Water

Canada Water is only two stops from famous London Bridge and the likes of Surrey Docks, Greenwich, Borough Market, Canary Wharf and Shoreditch are within easy reach. But there are plenty of amenities in the local area to keep TEDI-London students occupied outside of the engineering lab! Here are some of our favourites:

Green space

You may think an area on the docklands would be short of green space but Canada Water is in fact home to a lovely recreational park, nature reserve, woodland and there’s even a farm in nearby Surrey Quays! Perfect for a walk, to relax, or meet friends.
