    I dont know if this is the right place to ask this question?

    Im going to London im march and will be living near canningtown with the O2 arena on the other side of the river. I will be in the need for some liquor and Since I don't know which stores to buy alcohol in london i must ask somewhere and i hope someone could help me out


    I would like a store with a good selection of liquor and beer.


    And also if someone could tell me where to get some cheap, good and hopefully healthy food in the same area you will make me very happy

    Hop on any bus from the o2, and stay on it for about 5stops and you will get to a sainsburys. I'm not sure if that's the closest from Canning Town, but it's certainly the nearest and cheapest from the o2.

    There probably is! Why don't you do a google search or something! Travelling all that way with your weekly shop isn't going to be fun!!!! Otherwise, just ask the driver to let you off at 'Greenwich Perninsular Sainsburys'. 3 stops down and there's an Asda too! Good Luck in London

    If you're on the other side of the river, why do you want stores near O2? There must be some nearer than all the way over the river.

    There are plenty of shops in and around Canning Town - when you get there just jump on a bus/take a walk around.

    Thanks everybody

    The reason why Ive asked for a shop near the O2 arena is that the O2 is a part of my destination for my visit to London. And i will be in a litte hurry when i arrive so it would have been nice to find a store pretty fast So when i can get what i need in canning town im very pleased

    Since im not from the uk I dont know which stores they are selling liquor in. But Ive understood that they sell liquor in regular food shops?
    That is not the practice in my country, where they sell liquor in own separate stores So this is why i need som information.

    I do not consider myself as an alcoholic, but i do enjoy my scotch in the weekends
