- London's second financial district is dominated by the tallest building in Europe. At some 800ft high, this building is officially known as One Canada Square, although you'll more commonly hear it called Canary Wharf Tower. The unique building with a pyramidal top was built by Cesar Pelli in 1991 and was the worlds first skyscraper to be clad in stainless steel. Its flashing pinnacle is a major London landmark notable many miles away. There is no public access to the interior of the building as it is reserved for the staff of the Daily Mirror, Independent and Daily Telegraph newspapers who work inside. The tower can be viewed from afar but you can get more up close and personal by visiting the marble atrium base, which is home to various shops and restaurants.
