Retail on the River
A divine spot for those in need of fine food and gifts.
Location: Gabriel's Wharf, SE1 9PP
Description: Gabriel's Wharf has become highly popular with local workers, residents and visitors on the South Bank.
The buildings in this intimate spot are actually old garages but now frequented by restaurants, cafes, shops and a whole lot more, overlooking the river - indeed, they offer a relaxing step back for local employees...a chance to escape the office. With Studio 6 providing the liquid refreshment.
With great food from pizza to crepe, and some fabulous shops specialising in jewellery, art, sculpture... this small area on the South Bank will inspire all who visit.
Walk past and take it all in.
