5 things to do in and around Canary Wharf this week: February 24 to March 2



1 Boxpark doughnuts

Dum Dum Donutterie is the newest food establishment at Shoreditch's Boxpark so that's as good a reason as any to eat some doughnuts.

The donutters at the store prepare a wide range of varieties of the sugary treats. It opens Tuesday and between 8am and 9am there will be FREE samples. Go to dumdums.co.uk

2 Swing, jump and roll at Parkour Generations


For both youngsters and adults, what better way to keep fit than tackling a range of obstacles and jumps.

The UK centre at the Chainsaw Academy in Trinity Buoy Wharf opened this week and it's a playground for big kids.

As well as swinging on bars, there's rope climbing, tyre flipping and weight lifting.

3 Carnvial cocktails at Las Iguanas

You might not be basking in the heat of the Rio sunshine, but a taste of the Latin American carnival has made its way to North Greenwich.

Indulge in Las Iguanas' Carnival Kitsch concoction, a limited edition tipple to mark the entirety of the festivities, served up during the restaurant's happy hours until March 4.

Combining a heady mix of mango, Malibu, orange and Blue Curacao, it is topped off with fresh raspberries and plentiful ice for £6 each.
