Paws on the Wharf

An accessible and inclusive art trail - 25 March - 17 May 2024

Our ‘pawsome’ Guide Dogs sculpture trail

Our Paws on the Wharf art trail has now come to an end. For eight weeks, we showcased a collection of larger-than-life guide dog sculptures throughout Canary Wharf, each individually decorated by talented artists in vibrant designs. Did you manage to pick up the scent and follow this accessible outdoor trail of discovery?

The trail has now finished but our incredible sculptures are now looking for their 'furever' homes. You could bid for your favourite Canary Wharf canine through our auction. Our online auction is now live!

Brought to you by Guide Dogs and Wild in Art, supported by Citi and hosted by Canary Wharf Group and Canal & River Trust, Paws on the Wharf was created to raise awareness and vital funds to help people with sight loss live more active and independent lives.

Bid to give your favourite Canary Wharf canine their 'furever' home!

Our life-changing dogs inspired the design of our Paws on the Wharf sculpture. Decorated in vibrant, unique and exciting designs, each sculpture has a ‘tail’ to tell.
