Wapping Wharf reopens after lockdown


Wapping Wharf is encouraging people to come back and visit its 40+ independent businesses as the Government eases lockdown – but responsibly.

Since lockdown began in March, many of the dockside quarter’s businesses have adapted to the “new normal”, launching delivery services and offering takeaway. Now, shops have re-opened their doors – and many of the restaurants are set to do the same in the coming weeks.

Umberslade – the developer behind Wapping Wharf – is working closely with the area’s businesses to implement a series of measures to ensure that people can enjoy what’s on offer safely, while still making the area a pleasant place for everyone.

Changes include one-way systems within both CARGO 1 and 2, and signage that encourages people to keep their distance from one another and queue appropriately. As part of the collective national effort to keep coronavirus at bay, the Wapping Wharf team is encouraging people to respect the area, follow the guidance, and act responsibly when visiting.

Stuart Hatton, managing director at Umberslade, said: “We would encourage people to support our fantastic array of independent shops, restaurants, cafes and other businesses following a very difficult few months for everyone.

“We are working very hard to ensure that the public spaces and facilities at Wapping Wharf are safe and pleasant for everyone, and closely with the businesses themselves to make sure their customers feel at ease.

“We are all living in challenging times but this is particularly so for the hospitality, leisure and retail sectors, so we kindly ask for collaboration from the wider public so everyone can enjoy what’s on offer whilst keeping safe.”

In the coming weeks, there are plans to create an extended outdoor seating area between Wild Beer and CARGO 1 in the afternoons and evenings, with both pedestrians and cyclists to be redirected around the back of CARGO 1.
