Everyone is heading to the 1st Uganda Convention taking place in London

Whether you're in London for the first time or have lived here all your life, there's always something new and exciting to be discovered. This year on the 27th August 2011 at Troxy Arena, the dust has built-up and everyone is heading to the 1st Uganda Convention taking place in London. The location was well-chosen due to accesibility, location and venue availability.

The venue is just a mile away from Canary Wharf, the former West India Docks and accomodates Britain’s tallest building Canary Wharf. Canary Wharf has become one of the most popular London attractions with sightseeing tourists keen to take photographs of this spectacular visual icon of modern London. The Canary Wharf complex, which is located on the Isle of Dogs, was built primarily to house financial situations but has since expanded to include shops, restaurants and arts venues. Canary Wharf houses three of Britain’s tallest buildings, including the famous One Canada Square, the Citigroup Centre and Eight Canada Square. London's sight-seeing tourists can get great shots of these buildings while completing a cruise of the River Thames.
