Rum & Sugar
Canary Wharf Screen is kindly supported by Rum & Sugar. Situated at the Museum of London Docklands in a Grade I listed warehouse, Rum & Sugar takes its name, and much of its style, from its original function as a rum and sugar store. The story of the district’s colourful past and the origins of the rum and sugar trade in London are kept alive through a British menu bursting with flavour and one of London’s most extensive selections of rum.
