Vision

Wapping Wharf is a new quarter in the historical and cultural heart of Bristol where people can live, shop, eat and relax by the city’s glistening waterfront.

This new community-focused neighbourhood on Bristol’s historic harbourside will feature over 600 new homes, reflecting the urban dockside character of the area, along with a range of retail and office space.

An exciting new addition to Bristol’s thriving food and drink scene, Wapping Wharf is set to become home to some of the city’s best independent restaurants, shops and cafes. It is also the location of CARGO, Bristol’s first retail yard made of converted shipping containers.

Wapping Wharf provides an important new connection between south Bristol and the city centre following the opening of Gaol Ferry Steps, which runs through the heart of the new neighbourhood. People can now easily walk down this pedestrianised, tree-lined route, which links Gaol Ferry Bridge to the waterfront and a new public landscaped square.

Based on land that was previously derelict, this phased project will eventually retain and restore several key listed buildings and the Old City Gaol gatehouse to enhance the City Docks conservation area. One of the most significant new schemes in the city, Wapping Wharf is one of the final pieces in the jigsaw that will complete the regeneration of Bristol’s iconic Floating Harbour.
