This section (part 3) of the Across London Visual Marathon goes from East India DLR to Canary Wharf Station (Eastern entrance) and is about 2 Km long.
The start of the run is not that interesting, but it becomes a scenic 'cityscape' from the middle section to the end. It takes you from East India DLR, through Blackwall and then into Poplar Dock Marina. It then flows into Blackwall Basin and through the eastern entrance into Canary Wharf. From there, it explores the east side near Canada Square and South Dock before finishing at Canary Wharf's station by jubilee Park Gardens.
The best time to do this run is first thing in the morning - at the weekend. The area around Canary Wharf will be reasonably busy during the weekend.
