This major business district which is located in the area known as Tower Hamlets in East London is home to one of the United Kingdom's two main financial centres, the other being the traditional City of London. Canary Wharf contains many of Europe's tallest buildings and with continued development becomes a more stunning visual landscape year by year. Canary Wharf itself contains approximately 14,000,000 square feet of office and retail space although this is growing on a yearly basis with the continued success of the area.
The Millennium Dome, consequently referred to simply as The Dome, is the original name of a large dome-shaped building, originally used to house the Millennium Experience, a major exhibition celebrating the beginning of the third millennium. Located on the Greenwich Peninsula in South East London, England, the exhibition was open to the public from 1 January to 31 December 2000. The project and exhibition was the subject of considerable political controversy as it failed to attract the number of visitors anticipated, with recurring financial problems. All of the original exhibition and associated complex has since been demolished. The dome still exists, and it is now a key exterior feature of The O2. The Prime Meridian passes the western edge of the Dome and the nearest London Underground station is North Greenwich on the Jubilee line.
When Canary Wharf was developed there was a perquisite for improving transport links, the developers recognised these as essential to the success of the project. The extension of the Docklands Light Railway (DLR) to Bank, and upgrading of frequencies and capacity vastly improved the system. The DLR now serves four stations in the area: West India Quay, Canary Wharf, Heron Quays and South Quay.
