This section of the Across London Visual Marathon takes you through the heart of the financial district in Canary Wharf with its modern buildings and then along the riverside at Westferry before finishing off at Limehouse Basin Marina.
Part 4 starts from the eastern entrance of Canary Wharf Station and ends at Limehouse DLR station, covering a distance of 2.5 Km. The route contains cityscapes, river views, parks and a marina, mainly off-road.
The best time to do this run is first thing in the morning - and at the weekend when it is quieter. The area around Canary Wharf can get busy, buts it is less active by the river and in the Limehouse Basin.
