Canning Town is an area of East London in England. It is part of the London Borough of Newham and is situated in the area of the former London docks on the north side of the River Thames. It is the location of Rathbone Market. Despite being a neighbour to many Dockland developments, Canning Town remains among the 5 per cent most deprived areas in the UK with local people suffering from poor health, low education and poverty.
Prior to the establishment of Greater London in 1965, Canning Town was in the County Borough of West Ham and was considered to be part of the county of Essex.
