Wapping area guide

Found in the east of London right on the riverside, Wapping is a community-focussed, sought-after place to live and work – and deservedly so.

Located between Limehouse and Tower Bridge on the north side of the River Thames, Wapping has a notably historic, Dickensian feel to it, complete with cobbled streets, wharves and old warehouses. A booming part of London’s Docklands until World War II wreaked mass devastation on the area, the 1980s saw a restoration of the red-brick buildings and cobblestoned alleyways once more, bringing Wapping back to its former glory. Galleries sprung up in old abandoned spice and tea warehouses, with the avant-garde B2 Gallery being one of the most famous. The elegant Olivers Wharf was also reinvigorated, with a host of celebrity residents including Cher and Sir Alec Guinness calling it home and setting a growing trend for further warehouse conversions and renovations.

Stroll along Wapping’s riverside today with its leafy streets and historic architecture and you won’t fail to notice its vibrant maritime past alongside its thriving, vibrant present.

Fact File

  • In 1969, the London Dock was filled in; in some parts of Wapping you’re literally walking on water.
  • A large number of famous faces call Wapping home, including Graham Norton and Helen Mirren.
  • Look for Pelican Stairs, Wapping Old Stairs and Watermen’s Stairs; they are all ancient embarkation points for getting on and off ferries and boats hundreds of years ago.

Local Amenities

  • For your everyday grocery essentials there’s a big Waitrose on Thomas More Street near to the main road. Or, for something a little more artisan, check out Wapping Sourdough, a family-run bakery selling excellent quality bread and pizza slices on Thomas More Square.
  • Tench Street is home to the John Orwell Sports Centre incorporating an amazing state-of-the-art gym, outdoor and indoor sports pitches plus a range of exercise classes. A Fitness First gym and swimming pool can also be found on Thomas More Square.
  • Enjoy a day by the river and head to Shadwell Basin Outdoor Activity Centre where you’ll find rowing, sailing, canoeing and powerboating, plus high ropes and a climbing wall.

Education 

Wapping offers a large array of local state and private schools for families choose from. Part of the local authority of Tower Hamlets, Wapping has nurseries including Matilda Day Nursery and Dreammaker Day Nursery, plus two primary schools called Shapla Primary School and Hermitage Primary School.
