Canary Wharf has opened its first ever 3 x 3 basketball court at Bank Street Park and it’s been designed by renowned British-Nigerian artist Yinka Ilori. Yinka brings his colour-obsessed style to this vibrant installation that covers the entirety of the court’s surface and the walls that surround it. The theme of the installation is ‘Be The Best You Can Be’ and the court aims to inspire visitors to the area as we emerge from a difficult period, and it’s free to the public so you can get down there between now and the end of October and shoot some hoops.

Camille Walala’s geometric designs are instantly recognisable and she’s brought her signature patterns to Canary Wharf with ‘Captivated by Colour’. Originally installed at Adams Plaza bridge as part of the inaugural London Mural Festival, the colourful work, which creates an optical pattern that shrinks and elongates as you move through the tunnel, is now a permanent addition to Canary Wharf’s public art collection.

You can’t beat a good rooftop, especially one that’s got a garden, and Crossrail Place Roof Garden is one of the biggest in London. It showcases some of the plants that were brought to the capital by explorers in the 18th and 19th centuries, and as Crossrail Place is almost exactly on the Meridian Line the layout reflects different hemispheres. You’ll find Asian plants like bamboo and Japanese maple on the eastern side of the garden, with ferns and sweet gum from the Americas on the western side. You can wander through and explore the foliage or take five on the benches nestled into the pathways.

Dumpling Shack started out as a way to get dumplings on London’s street food scene map but thanks to spin-off concept Fen Noodles, its branching out into different elements of Chinese cuisine. The brand’s South Quay site still centres around their signature shengjianbao (pan-fried soup dumplings) but also has a rotating list of specials exclusive to the site. Some of the spesh dishes include the big plate beef noodles, with slow braised marbled short rib cooked in doubanjiang, stir-fried with potatoes and peppers on a bed of hand-pulled belt noodles; Mala honey fried chicken over Hong Kong French toast with a cream corn filling; and peanut butter mochi French toast served with condensed milk & golden syrup. If you already love them for their dumplings, you’ll want to head to South Quay to give these plates a try.
