Paws on the Wharf art trail

Today we were tourists for a day in London. We started with Up the O2 (walking up and over the O2) which was fun, then a trip on the IFS Cloud Cable Car over the Thames, before a trip to Canary Wharf to visit the Paws on the Wharf art trail.

The Paws on the Wharf art trail has been around since the 25th March but this is the first time we were able to visit. The free art trail has been organised by Guide Dogs and Wild in Art. There are 25 larger-than-life guide dogs, each one decorated by a different artist.

We picked up a paper map from the reception at One Canada Water and tried to find as many as we could.

Canary Wharf is home to London’s largest collection of free-to-visit outdoor art, which makes it a great location for an art trail. We have never been to an art trail of dogs before but they are a lovely subject to decorate and see. Guide Dogs is a charity which helps people living with sight loss. The trail is step free and accessible to all. If you’re planning on visiting hurry! The trail ends on the 18th May.

    Sounds like such a paw-some day out in London with the family. Can’t wait to take the kiddos on a doggie art adventure.

    I love these types of sculpture trails – and the colorful dogs are so much fun! I had no idea this was going on so close to me.
