Top ways to experience Gabriel's Wharf and similar attractions

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Southbank
Big time attractions such as the London Eye and a thriving theatre scene (compliments of the National Theatre and the Young Vic) are but a few of the reasons that Southbank is such a collectively cherished part of town. With plenty of family friendly activities and venues lined up along a pedestrianized river bank between Westminster Bridge and Waterloo Bridge, visitors can always expect a casual and festive atmosphere. On top of all the fun stuff to do at Southbank is the opportunity to simply sit back and admire photo-op views of iconic landmarks like Parliament and St Paul's Cathedral, just on across the Thames.

Not worth a special visit
Nov 2021 • Couples
This place appears run down and when visiting on a weekday lunchtime, many shops and restaurants were shut. Fine to have a quick look if you are strolling by but not a destination

Lovely hidden-gem
Aug 2021
This is a little hidden gem tucked away a few minutes from the Southbank centre. It is home to small local independent shops that sell clothing and art. The shop owners are friendly and passionate about their products. Despite the area, you can find some good bargains if you shop smart. There are also restaurants and bars to enjoy after shopping. If you prefer something more niche or are looking to get away from the crowds, it is worth a visit.

Don’t Waft By Gabriel’s Wharf
Apr 2021 • Couples
When walking along The Southbank many would bypass this lovely little area. It is full of little independent shops & places to eat.
Very picturesque.
Always an area I love to explore when walking around London.

Nice area
Oct 2018
We walked around this part of the Southbank and found it extremely enjoyable. We looked through the shops, did plenty of window shopping and checked out some of the eateries and cafes. The views from this spot are fantastic. Highly recommended.

Great Little Area to shop and eat
Mar 2019 • Solo
I can't remember seeing Gabriel's Wharf on previous visits to London but I'm glad I stumbled across it this time.

It's a really cool little area with lots of specialist shops and places to eat. My favourite little shop was a place selling gorgeous little purses and bags.

Lovely little place to while away an hour or so.

Visited at night before but whilst it is still a nice place on a May afternoon it is not very vibrant. Selection of specialist shops and restaurants.

Specialist art shops and food
May 2019 • Solo
There is a feel of a Hollywood lot to Gabriel's Wharf with the single storey specialist art and design shops in front of a painted brick wall, with the ITV Tower beyond it.

The Wharf has different phases - the morning is quiet and the world is awakening, and then lunchtime arrives, at which point the eating places and the galleries open. Thereafter, it gets better....and there is a real buzz in the early evening.

My recent visit was on wet rainy May day and, though everything was open in the afternoon, the atmosphere was subdued and quiet I guess it is best to wait for the sun....

What a great find!!!

Tucked away along the South Bank - great independent shops, a tasty restaurant/bar and just a generally cool little hidey hole - thoroughly recommended for a pitstop and unusual gifts/clothes etc

charming hidden enclave
Nov 2018 • Friends
If you are like me, you enjoy nothing more than a walk on London's south bank on your days off to take in the culture and beauty of our capitol city. Well i found Gabriels Wharf on one such walk last year during an evening out with friends and wandered around the querky 'yard' with some really interesting looking businesses - all lit up and pretty. Im going to have to come back to do some shopping I think. The picture is of a Fair Trade Indian clothing shop.

Cute shops, good food and nice vibes

We happened up this area on our way to get lunch at Pieminster (side note: go there!) It’s a lovely area, the shops are full of beautiful unique items and most are artist run. It’s worth a stop and I bet it’s even more lovely when the weather is a bit warmer and you can sit and enjoy the water views!
