Discover our ‘pawsome’ Guide Dogs sculpture trail

Put your best paw forward and get ready for an unmissable art trail - running for eight weeks, from 25 March to 17 May 2024.

Paws on the Wharf will bring a collection of larger-than-life guide dog sculptures to Canary Wharf, each individually decorated by talented artists in vibrant designs. Pick up the scent and follow the trail of discovery for an accessible and fun celebration of our iconic much-loved guide dogs!
