The bright lights of Canary Wharf's towers already provide quite the spectacle after dark, but the area will glow even more than usual this month thanks to the addition of a variety of installations from 11 different artists. An interactive LED sculpture will see visitors controlling sounds and graphics with their bodies, 'On the Bridge' will emit clouds of pink fog as people cross a bridge and 'Ice Angel' provides the chance to see your celestial alter-ego. The Interactive Family Weekend (9-11) sees the addition of activities such as light painting, 3D storytelling, illuminated shapes and animations to provide an interactive (and creative) playground of light. Times and dates for the installations vary; check the Winter Lights website for more information and to download the full programme.

The info is so wrong. You guys should really have taken it off. It says that it's good until 25 Jan, so I went there with my friend today but didn't see lights on Middle Dock. Therefore, I thought that we might went to a wrong place. I followed the address that you guys provide here, which is Isle Of Dogs, London, E14 4HJ. That is so wrong. It's not even in Canary Wharf. My friend and I took DRL Island Gardens. It was nothing there. It was just a building. Therefore, we went back to Canary Wharf again to find out unusual wind-powered illuminations, but there were not there anymore. Please be careful of that.


Perhaps they look good at night when viewed from a certain angle, but at other times, although it sounds like a great idea in principle, they seem to lack that finishing touch that would have made them aesthetically pleasing to the eye. When you look down at them in daylight and see bare metal poles that haven't been cut to size and just joined together with bolts, they look more like a bit of scaffolding that's fallen off a disused building site.


Is amazing view that keeps you in awesome feeling .... that matches the style of canary wharf _ worlds one of the best place to be ..
