Visitors encouraged to Canary Wharf for Open House
Canary Wharf Group will be inviting the public to see behind the scenes of the estate on Saturday.
As part of Open House London, the Crossrail station and Level39 technology accelerator space will be open for viewing. Staff will also be taking people around to look at the public art collection on the estate.
Canary Wharf's strategic adviser Howard Dawber said "Open House London is a fantastic opportunity for visitors to enjoy buildings otherwise closed to the public.
"It is also a chance to show how the area attracts the best artistic and cultural minds, as well as commercial ones, and the far-reaching benefits that Crossrail will bring."
Currently under construction, the Crossrail Station on the north of Canary Wharf goes 28m below the dock. People can see the platforms and the newly completed ticket hall.
Level39 occupies the 39th floor of One Canada Square. Boasting spectacular views across the capital, it is Europe's largest accelerator space for financial, retail and future city technologies.
The public art tour takes visitors around 65 works. There is also a free illustrated art map available for self-guided tours, which can be picked up from One Canada Square's lobby.
No booking is required for the Crossrail tour but places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. ID will be required. See events.londonopenhouse.org/building/18592 for more.
Pre-booking for Level39 is essential. Email email@example.com with your preferred time. Public art tours are also first come, first served.
